V1817 in autumn leaves ponte

Hard to believe, but this is the 6th rendition of Vogue 1817 that I’ve made! The Autumn Leaves Ponte fabric is fun and easy to sew, and the minute I tried on the finished garment I breathed a sigh of happiness. Feels like a second skin, soft and smooth and cozy, has the vibe of a sweater, is flattering, hangs close to the body and will work as an indoor garment or an outer layer. Makes a good layering piece too, can slide a thin vest under the jacket and could slip a coat over it. The print adds a quiet wash of color and will work with all my black basics, so I know this will become a cool weather at home, out and about and travel basic. Does not show spots or wrinkle either.

FABRIC

PATTERN

The garment I wore the most last winter was a version of this vest in cotton flannel, so I decided to repeat that success in another color way. I took one yard each of 4 fabrics: Smokey Mountain Plaid, Cecil Herringbone, Gray Time Out, and Sherlock Houndstooth. Arranged the fabrics on the design table and dress form - and in some cases cut 2 versions of the same pattern piece to see the results. I pin scrap of the selected fabric on the pattern pieces and waited until the body of the garment is complete to cut out the collar.

The one red button reflects a Japanese phrase Koh-itten, describing the aesthetic of one dot of red against a neutral background.

Can't wait for cool weather to set in so I can wear it!
