Description

this is a pattern I have used before, but as I made it in this stretchy velvet I could do it without the buttons in the back , stitch the side seams, put in sleeves and literally wear the top after 1 hour :-)). The fabric was left over from a dress I made a while ago, and luckily there was just enough and I love how well the colour matches the skirt.

    Just gorgeous, i thought you might have made this when i saw your fabulous suit. I forgot to ask what pattern did you use for your suit. I really love the jacket shape x

      thank you very much Mary ! The top was really so easy, seeing I didn’t need all those buttons. I love it very much and will wear it loads no doubt !
      the patterns I used were: skirt no. 107/02/11, jacket no. 120/08/2011 and the top 131/05/2012.
      I am not so thrilled with the jacket, it’s ok open, but don’t like it that much with the zip closed. Not a difficult pattern though, but probably better with a stretchy material. The fabric I used, is a bit too stiff.
