I agree with you about the vogue.I think with that tweed I would do something like Lekala 4005http://www.lekala.co/catalog/women/jackets/4005
The fabric immediately made me think of this Burda Style jacket I'm planning to make in the very near future - not quite a tweed cardigan, but almost: Burda 06/2013 #123.http://www.burdastyle.com/pattern_store/patterns/raglan-jacket-062013
I love that fabric! Not keen on the tweed jeans jacket idea though, so many other styles would be more 'wow'.

Starting this comment over...! I like the idea of the denim jacket, beautiful fabric.
Love the denim jacket idea. The fringe tweed blazers have been done before.
Love this fabric! I'm not sure about the jean jacket idea but agree with you on Vogue 1440. I'd use the fabric for a plain cardigan with binding to show off the fabric.
I like the jean jacket! - I have one similar in the planning I was debating over a zipper closer on mine? My wardrobe tends to be more on the casual side but its great to have the option of dressing it up a bit. Can't wait to see your jacket I know it will be fabulous!
Just noticing you in your maxi skirt with jean jacket on the right...I can totally see you wearing a tweed jean jacket! It would be a great little twist on a classic!
I wonder if the jeans detailing would compete with the tweed...but your jackets are so fabulous, I'm sure you'd work it out. I'm stuck on a fitted dress out of the tweed.
I love the idea of a tweed "denim" jacket. Designers are using lots of different fabrics for that silhouette now. Go for it!
The jean jacket idea would fit best into your wardrobe I think. Though I think this https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/WafflePatterns would be really great in that tweed as well (if you like the style) – make a muslin though! I found the arm holes a bit too low for me.
I'd go with the jean jacket look. Love the fabric and I think it would look great in that pattern....fresh and new!
Think the tweed would be lovely as a jean jacket.
If you need to be discouraged from the tweed jacket, have a look at the blog, A Challenging Sew, wherein the blogger attempts to fit a muslin for the tweed jacket. A true nightmare!
I think it would be great. Right away my mind had questions. How would stabilize the tweed especially where you would have snaps? Are you planning some design changes since you are using tweed?
This fabric would make a cute and interesting "bomber jacket".
I have that exact same fabric! Ha! Mood has a gazillion fabrics, and we gravitate towards the same so often! I think it would look cute as a 'denim' jacket, especially given that its color is already very reminiscent of denim. But, I'm pretty sure I saw that Vogue pattern made up at the Sew Expo this year, and it was pretty stunning in person. You can't go wrong, right?!
A jacky a la Jackie K. ☺
Second try 😉:A jacket a la Jackie K. ☺
Hi Lori, Mary from the blog Cloning Couture just posted about making a muslin of the Vogue pattern, and it looks pretty complicated. Butterick has a new Lisette pattern out with a pared down moto jacket...also, Susan Khalje is about to launch her French Jacket course on her website with her own pattern, so you may want to check that out if you want to go there.
I think a moto jacket in tweed would be uber cool. Have been thinking of doing one of those myself. You cannot however, go wrong, with a classic jean jacket silhouette. That Vogue pattern was tempting, but I don't have the time needed to put into the fitting and sewing - all those pieces, piping and ribbon! I would love the challenge of it, but by the time I got done I might justhate it!
