Ok, so the Vogue patterns are on sale at Joann's on Saturday (sep. 3rd) for $3.99
Now i have no clue what one(s) to buy but I figured if someone else either has one they've been thinking about making, or a super cute one in mind, then I'm down for spending $3.99 for a pattern... and I'm sure a few more of you would be too!
So what should we make? =)

I must say, I'm liking this trench coat-like jacket:


Am I thinking too practical?  Well, there are some really pretty designer Vogue party dresses, and I'll admit to being a little bit intimidated by their complexity.  But that's what sewalongs are for, right?  Helping each other through the confusing parts.   Wink

Ohh thats really cute! And I'm loving the *very easy*... I try to buy vogue average and I end up calling my mom every 15 minutes and having to fax  her parts of the pattern going "What the?!?!"
It looks really simple but could be super cute in some fun material... If no one else pops up with something else by tomorrow, I'm gonna go buy that one!

I especially like that jacket because I hate button placement and making button holes.  I don't see how a *lined* jacket could be so "Very Easy", but that's Vogue for ya!   Cheesy  Anyone else see any Vogue they like?

Hmm.. all right, looks like that is a good one then!
I talked one of the girls at my work into learning how to sew, and this is gona be her learning project! (I have a feeling this  will be more like 2 making 1 and 3/4 jackets and her doing 1/4 of the work, but thats cool, at least she'll be learning!)
This will be fun and cute! YAY!

That's really nice, what you're doing for your friend.  I'm sure the two of you will have a lot of fun!

Okay, so I got Vogue 8110 at JoAnn's today (is anyone else sewing this?).  I was kinda unimpressed with the current wool selection at my JoAnn's, so I went with a bronze & black *cotton* herringbone suiting from the clearance section; nice texture, Halloween-y, machine washable (yes!)  This will be more of a Fall coat (which is totally frivolous in California).  Cheesy  And this is probably the only uninterrupted weekend I'll have to sew until Winter Break, so...off I go!

I'm in....I bought a nice navy corduroy (with tiny pink polka dots) at Joann's today.  I haven't started cutting the fabric but will tomorrow.  I'll keep you updated on the progress...!

Yay, glad more people are joining!  8110 has only (7) pieces, belt included.  The stylized collar is not tricky at all.  From what I can tell, there's no hand-sewing to do.  The lining is meant to fit the outside exactly, and you just machine stitch all around the collar, front, and bottom edges (with right sides together).  So I've finished with the cutting.  Don't know if I'll get to sew today - darned Labor Day barbeque!  Undecided

Ok, so I've gotten the patterns for the 2 of us, and I have bought fabric as well. It's not so interesting, A green poplin/twill thing, but the Joanns near by is moving so EVERYTHING was on sale... can't beat $3 a yard!
I've sent my friend home with the pattern, her measurements and instructions to cut the pattern out in her size. I have a feeling I'll just make mine so I understand it then I'll walk her through hers. School eats my soul though so I may not be done that soon!

Has anyone started sewing yet?  I'm barely into it and already I have run into a problem---is it just me, or do pieces 1 and 2 not fit together at all??  I'm on step 4 of the instructions, pin side front section (2) to front section (1).  help!  Smiley
