Introducing The Vintage Jeanne Paquin Couture Jacket

The Vintage Couturiere Vintage Vogue Patterns

Introducing a very special vintage couture project:

A 1950’s Vogue Paris Original vintage Jeanne Paquin couture jacket.

The Vintage Couturière is excited to be making this jacket designed for Vogue by the House of Paquin in the 1953. Made in dark blue cotton velvet and embellished with metallic thread tambour embroidery and Swarovski crystals, this jacket is sure to impress any vintage couture collector or enthusiast. The jacket will feature the signature J Paquin tambour embroidered around the neckline. We’re also having the pleated scarf hand made by a pleater in Australia who specialises in the hand pleating process as is done for the haute couture ateliers in Paris.

The illustration above appears on the cover of the original Vogue Couturier pattern. The pattern has been resized for a modern bespoke fit. Below is a photo of a cotton toile of the original pattern in size 16: bust 34″ and hips 37″.

Below is the back view of the cotton toile. It is quite plain in shape with a modest flare at the hip line and wide shoulder silhouette.

The embroidery pattern features motifs of feathers stitched in gold and silver metallic threads set amongst sparkling beads of Swarovski crystals and three dimensional beaded flowers.

So far, we’ve completed the embroidery on the right front side of the neckline and have started work on the left. After that, the back neck embroidery needs to be completed before construction of the jacket can begin. We’re still deciding whether to embroider the sleeves!
