Vogue 1066 Jacket

As promised, here’s the jacket portion of the pattern.  Compared to the pants, this really is an easy jacket to make.  It’s a loose-fitting raglan sleeve jacket with a stand-up collar.  The sleeves are 3/4 length with pleats at the shoulders:

The shoulder pleats create a dramatic silhouette:

The jacket was interfaced (with the exception of the sleeves) with a woven fusible and fully lined.

I had a bunch of leftover piping from the pants, so piped the lining to the facing (always a nice touch).

Four bound buttonholes down the front.

I put machine buttonholes on the facing side, and I added one hook-and-eye closure at the neck seam.

I can see myself making these pants again, but probably not the jacket, it’s pretty distinctive.  This would really be a good look for those with narrow or weak shoulders.  Overall, this is simple jacket to make.  There’s no fit to it, no sleeves to set, and no 4-point collar to fool with.  I went down a size from my usual 12 and made up the 10 with still plenty of room.

Just for kicks, here’s what it looks like when worn open:
