Sewing the v1493 jacket (Vogue Patterns)

19 Commentaires

Dots or stripes, I chose not to choose with this v1493 jacket from Vogue.

I had spotted this pattern on Instagram and then came the fabric quest to have a combo highlighting the so special sleeves.

Then, a few weeks months passed… # moreideasthantime

The v1493 jacket pattern

This model is a Vogue jacket pattern by designer stylist KOOS Couture from I don’t know when but still on sale.

The v1493 jacket is unlined, very roomy, with pockets caught in the princess cutouts and side slits. Finally, its killer detail is in the “pagoda” sleeves with overlapping panels.

The level is noted “Advanced / More difficult” because the pattern provides for the inlay of all the decorations (lines & flowers) visible on the photo of the cover. But if we omit these inlays, the pattern is quite simple and fast.

There is no need for complicated adjustments, thanks to the rather loose fit, nor any closing system (zip, buttons).

The only difficulty is the pointed assembly of the lower part of the sleeve (the striped part of the sleeves).

I love that jacket so much, I made a little mask to match.

I bought this pattern directly from the American McCalls / Vogue website during one of their many discount periods.

The pattern “normally” costs $30, but it is often on sale for $21, and there are regular sale periods around $3 for McCalls patterns and $6-7 for Vogue.

According to my calculation, you need to take 3 patterns to get the best value for shipping costs for France. Less isn’t profitable and more is exploding costs. At least it was two years ago, but since McCalls, Vogue & Co. have undergone reorganizations… the site is now called somethingdelightful.com. So maybe that’s changed.

On my side, I had also taken the v9253 dress that I had sewn and worn well and the m7726 pants that I had enjoyed sewing but whose cut wasn’t very flattering on me (despite my attempts to adjust them).

Sewing the v1493 jacket

The amount of fabric advertised is 2.4 m of main fabric + 1.5 m of contrast fabric.

In fact, the contrast fabric is intended for the famous inlays. Therefore, it is possible to do without it. 

For my part, I sewed the M size based on the chest measurement only.

I’m above the measurements for the waist and hips by 4-5 cm but as you can see, it’s not a problem.

The pattern has pockets (yeah o/) and fully Hong-Kong finished seams on the inside.

In other words, if the jacket assembles quickly, the Hong-Kong finish takes time and meters of bias.

The explanations are pretty clear but I didn’t like the instructions for the pockets in the seams.

This method aligns the seams of the pockets with the assembly seams of the two front pieces… at the slightest offset, too bad. It shows.

And guess what? It showed!

So I prefer this method: https://www.tillyandthebuttons.com/2017/10/how-to-add-in-seam-pockets-to-garment.html

I added a stitch to attach the pockets to the neckline band so that they don’t float around.

It is instructed to hand-stitch the neckline strip on the inside for an invisible finish.

I started to do this but finally, not too satisfied with the result, I made a visible black topstitch.

I sewed the shoulder with a French seam to make my life easier in comparison to the Hong-Kong finish.

It’s completely possible to do the same on the rest of the assembly seams or even just overlock if you really want to go fast.

But why speeding? Relax!


I’m so faaaaaan of this jacket ! I like everything: the fabric, the cut, the sleeves and even without the sleeves (seen during the intermediate tries) it falls superbly. I love it. 

Its only flaw, I can’t wear it more than 2 hours before I stain it. I’m cursed with white. But it doesn’t matter!

    Très réussie, très belle !

    Cette veste vous va très bien et vu sa forme et les manches les taches ne me surprennent pas

    • 16 August 2020 at 19:55

      Oh ce ne sont pas les manches qui se tachent, elles sont noires essentiellement… c’est plutôt le corps de veste. Je ne sais pas comment je m’arrange mais je me frotte toujours à un truc qui laisse des traces chelous.

    Très sympa, et les manches sont vraiment originales !

    • 16 August 2020 at 19:54

      Oui, merci 🙂

    ça, c’est pas la veste de madame tout le monde ! c’est vraiment une réalisation magnifique, bravo !

    • 16 August 2020 at 19:53

      Merci beaucoup 🙂 Ne pas porter les mêmes vêtements que tout le monde, laisser cours à ma créativité, c’est une de mes motivations principales pour coudre je dois dire !

  • 30 July 2020 at 07:53

    Voilà une veste originale que tu as superbement réalisée. La combinaison entre les rayures et les pois est vraiment réussie. En tout cas, moi j’aime. Les manches sont canon. En plus, comme à ton habitude, ton article nous ouvre une multitude de pistes très intéressantes. Un grand merci pour cela.

      Merci Fanfreluche ! Le patron est vraiment canon, difficile de se louper à partir de ça 😉

    Wahou! En voilà de la veste qui “pète”! Bravo!

    • 16 August 2020 at 19:51

      Yes ! Merci 🙂

    Elle est superbe cette veste, j’adore également la forme des manches. Le mélange des motifs fonctionne à merveille. Bravo pour cette belle réalisation et tant pis pour les taches. Je suis aussi fan de blanc et y a rien de pire.. Les taches sont inévitables..
    Le site les lubies de Cadia a des jolies perles en matière de patron…

    • 16 August 2020 at 19:50

      J’avais une envie folle de l’amener en vacances en camping… mais bon, le blanc hein…

    Oh, super ! Je l’ai aussi depuis longtemps ce patron, sans avoir encore abouti le projet #plusdiddeesquedetempsaussi
    Ton choix de tissu est vraiment chouette et me motive à être cérébralement aux aguets pour trouver des tissus moi aussi !

    • 16 August 2020 at 19:50

      Quel excellent choix de patron, tu as très bon goût ! Lol 😉

  • 12 August 2020 at 10:07

    This is fantastic! And superbly made too.

    I have been scouring the internet for a nice home gown pattern and I think this might just be it!

    Thanks a bunch for sharing 🙂

      Thanks a lot! I’m sure it will be the more “chic” home gown ever 😉
