Vogue 1792 (oop)

I’m seeing so much houndstooth this season!  It’s the perfect opportunity to use a piece of brown and gray wool/cashmere houndstooth that I’ve kept in my stash for soooo long.  I’ve made a jacket from this pattern before and I was so successful with it, I decided to use it again to make up another using my beautiful houndstooth.  Here it is the first time I made it, from cotton/linen with topstitching, 3/4 length sleeves, nice fit, very Jackie O.

For some reason, the houndstooth jacket, wasn’t coming out like I had envisioned.  I’ll finish it and wear it, but it’s just not doin it for me right now.  I’ll post a pic as soon as I’m done with it.  Amazingly enough, I had enough fabric left over to make up Simplicity 3627:
 
 
Now this is what I wanted!  It’s very trendy, you can wear it with jeans; plus, I just saw this exact jacket in the mall today.  I also am working on a skirt,
 
 
just to coordinate, but I’m using cheap fabric, so it’s not coming together very well.  More pics are coming.
