3 piece suit for the office using Steffi, Jenny and Franzi patterns.
Steffi jacket – Since steffi isn’t lined it’s very quick to make, and i bound all the inner seams in grey bias binding so it keeps it nice and stiff.
Franzi waistcoat – I didn’t use satin/silk to make the back piece as you usually would for waistcoats, i used the same main outer fabric so i could wear just the waistcoat and skirt on their own.
Jenny skirt – super easy and lined, which i love in work skirts!
I was so lucky as to get matching buttons in two sizes for the jacket and waistcoat – YAY!
