Description

For the jacket I used Burdastyle #120A 8/2011. For the skirt I used Burdastyle’s 8/2012 #134. I always admired the Chanel suits with the boxy jackets and matching skirts. I thought I’d make one for myself although it’s at a more basic level. 2 yards of houndstooth was plenty of fabric. Easy and fun and ready to wear to the office. I can match these pieces to other things in my wardrobe which I really like.

Material Notes

2 yards houndstooth, 9 inch zipper, 18 inch zipper for jacket

      Thank you! You’re right, you can add almost any color blouse or top to give it a nice contrast.

    This is lovely on you and it is such a classic shape. The jacket will look great with jeans and a top as well. Did you line the jacket? Lovely smart two piece xx

      Thank you! I didn’t line the jacket but I probably should have. I’ve already worn it and I think it’s okay without it.
