Tell us more about what inspired you. It is a Vintage 1950 Vogue Jacket based oin the pattern V2934. It was one of my first pattern of vintage garment I have bought. I love the shape of this jacket and recently one of the bloggster Janene from ooobop! reminded me about it. I had just enough fabric to make it. I love the final result.

What materials did you use? Fashion fabric is a black viscose/polyester, maybe a little woll, the underlining is a cotton batiste and lining is satine (I think polyester or viscose). All fabrics are coming from my stash and I have bought them long ago.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It is great jacket - you may check the lengh of the sleeves before cutting the fabric. I have made the sleeves a little longer (added 3 cm) - but I think I will make it 1,5 cm shorter next time.
