I found this gorgeous cotton/linen fabric online, and when I saw a 1952 vintage Vogue pattern, I knew this was it. I modified it slightly (I raised the waist of about 3 inches, I’m high waisted), but mostly, it fits really well, the darts are perfectly placed. I wore it in Habana, Cuba, where it seemed to fit in with all these old cars!
(I’ve been re-using this great pattern, modifying it some more… It’s awesome to work with!)
Trousers, blazers, and blouses in cool neutrals have model-off-duty style.
