The blouse is a self drafted pattern. The jacket is fitted and lined with shawl collar, it has princess seams with drapey patch pockets. It has two-piece sleeves with slits and I decided to add buttons to the slits. I used McCall’s M5815.
The skirt is straight-fitting and lined. It is 1 inch below normal waist with waist line facing. I decided to extend the length of the skirt pattern to below knee length and I used Vogue pattern V1127.
l am proud of this skirt suit and I am so excited to see the result since this is my second time of making the jacket and skirt.
