Lace Jacket – SWAP Sewing

I obviously love this fabric – as I purchased it TWO DIFFERENT times from Vogue Fabrics at different expo/shows.   I thought long and hard before deciding how to make it up – but decided ultimately it said ‘loose, flowy jacket’.  I settled on Vogue 8819 – View C.

Vogue 8819

Since I had 2 pieces, I had a good amount of selvage – which was a scalloped lacy edge.  EEEEKKKKING it out, I ended up with enough to either cut the pieces with that edge (part of the upper center front bodice, and all of the lower center front, or to roughly cut it off and ‘plop it on top’ of the cut edge – for V center front, around the neck, sleeves, and hemline.

Rough lacy selvage ‘plopped and stitched on top’ of raw jacket edge.
