Description

This is my first try to work with suit vintage patterns.
It took quite a lot of time and I am satisfied with the result.
It was completely new for me to sew the zipper between the skirts wrinkle.
I manufactured the hem with lace by hand. To make it more beautiful I added a decorative seam on the lining hem.
To give the skirt a prolonged length I moistened it a bit and let it hang down for three days with weights.

    Wunderschön! Und mit soviel Liebe zum Detail, kannst sehr stolz auf Dich sein! Trägst Du den Rock mit einem Petticoat drunter oder warum steht der so schön ab?

    This is amazing! I’ve looked at patterns like this and never quite been able to brave them. I love the jacket, especially the little bows. Beautiful! (and well worth all that time!)

    I’m utterly blown away, the details are immaculate! I particularly like the fancy stitching on the lining hem – I bet you feel like a million dollar when you wear your new suit. You should be very very proud of yourself! x
