I am SO disappointed! I spent all evening trying to lay out the 1945 on the mulit boucle. I got all of the lines of the fabric lined up perfectly straight (I was so proud of myself) but no matter how I try to lay this stupid thing out, it will not fit! I even took 8" off the length and it still won't fit. I only have 2 yards (actually it's 3" shy - I actually did not order enough) of 58" fabric. I thought it would work for the shorter version, but that's not going to happen. Well, it will make a nice jacket. Maybe I'll try one of these.
I'm leaning toward the Vogue pattern with the collar variation in the middle picture.
BUT I have to make something that fits well before the stitch and flip class, so I'll have to see what I DO have enough of. I hope I bought enough of the other 2 tweeds. Or, maybe I won't make the 1945 yet, and do something else for the stitch and flip. I have all of these patterns, so I'll just have to pick one.
Of course, I do have the 1945C, and that should be the right amount for that pattern
