Description

The jacket is fully lined and follows a pattern which I found in Burda magazine but which was never published on the website.

In fact, I used it in at least 4 more occasions. This time I added the lining.

The jacket closes with one frog fastener and a few black large hooks and stays slightly opened to reveal the top underneath.

The skirt is a classic cut with darts, invisible zip at the back and slit. The skirt is, again, fully lined.

I added teal colour beads round neckline, and teal heavily beaded lace round sleeve cuffs and on skirt belt (with a little black velvet bow).

A classic winner!

Sizing: Jacket is an UK size 10 (32"bust), skirt is a an UK 8 -10 (70 cm waist)

I would say it is ideal for a formal business dinner, when a cocktail dress is not suitable.

      Thanks you. i have to blame myself for posting these terrible photographs, the suit is a lot more glamourous in reality. Thank for noticing the detail!
