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