"JackieO" Jacket - Vogue 8123 Finished
I finished the Vogue 8123 Jacket last night. I noticed the other day that in a list of patterns I was interested in doing, I had called it the JackieO Jacket, as an aide-memoire, and it does remind me of her style, and that era we associate so strongly with her style.
I added some more embellishment to the collar before attaching it, as I thought it was a little blah. I had forgotten all about roving, which makes a very nice base to add other things to, so I put it on top, and added a little more yarn on top of that.
The keyhole buttonhole was made with the template buttonholer on my Kenmore, and it worked beautifully through all the layers. Here's a close up of the collar, and of the antique carved mother-of-pearl button. You can see more photos at my Vogue 8123 Gallery at Pbase.
