i fell in love with this fabric the minute i saw it, and somehow felt that this pattern evocative of the 20s, would make a wonderful 50s style suit. i work for myself from home, so why i need a suit is anyone’s guess. possibly to wear lovely shoes with.
the skirt is done, the jacket still a work in progress. the skirt is a very simple yoke and swing construction, with inset belt hooks for a sash that i will make out of a luxurious white shiny fabric. key words were neat and clean, hence the inset belt hooks, and discreet top stitching below the yoke and hem.
the yoke is a double layer of the seed cloth, with light interfacing. the silhouette is neatened by top stitching the seam down.
the skirt is fastened by a white 20cm zip at back; i couldn’t use an invisible zip as they just don’t cope with going over double layers of fabric.
white seed cloth – polycotton, but majority cotton
blue printed cotton
