Great Gray Suit

The Eva Jacket No. 2 is done!
I have added shoulder pads to both and lining, with piping around the front and back. This makes a huge difference in the way it looks, especially if I take the jacket off. I now can be proud to say: “I’ve made this!” instead of saying…you know “I did not want to add the lining”, all threads hang out on purpose… and then find a silly excuse..
There really should be no excuse not adding lining to jackets, unless you are using the bias bindings or French seams… it’s really easy to add it and doesn’t take as long as you think. Here’s a great video from BurdaStyle, it might be all you need to know to add it.
The skirt is from Burda WoF No. 05/2006 and I simply love the pattern!
I did some changes to it and added the zipper and front center, eliminating the back center seam, and didn’t do the pockets, although I think they would have been great. I was really tight with the fabric, no remains at all! I hardly had a little piece to adjust the thread tension on the machines…
The top is from Burda WoF 04 or 05/2000 and I have sewn this a few years back…
cotton, paisley, invisible zipper, 3 large buttons, 2 small buttons, lining, piping
