In this post I shared the toile I made up using Vogue 8767 – a late 30’s jacket and dress combo. The fitting on the actress went beautifully – the only thing I had to do was nip the jacket in at the waist a little bit.
Done in a lightweight silk jacquard – which was great for the dress, but proved to be far too thin for the jacket. I ended up using fusible lightweight interfacing on the front and back peplum pieces, and flat-lined the body and sleeves to some medium-weight lining fabric. It seems to have given the jacket enough body and structure. Hooray!
And: just for fun, all of the toiles hanging out together before the fittings earlier this week. (The fifth is on a hanger in the back – not enough dress forms!) They look like a lively bunch, eh?
