1930s

1938 Ensemble in Paisley

August 5, 2014

I sewed this outfit last week for a sewing challenge that required paisley. Ordinarily, a peplum looks t-e-r-r-i-b-l-e on me, but Vogue 8767 was a wonderful exception. I sewed up a mock-up first to see if the pattern worked, then started in on the real deal. I absolutely love my jacket; it is comfortable, cute, easy to sew, and I have gotten tons of comments about it.

Overall, I would highly recommend this pattern! It is a very fun addition to your wardrobe, and would look really cute with long sleeves too!

Hop over to my blog for more details!

  1. I’m so glad you loved the peplum on yourself! I saw the pictures and the first thought was “the fit looks great on her!”- so I’m happy you agreed!

    I always feel paisleys are such a weird motif to work with, but I think you did a great job!
