    Thank you all, this was definitely a mile stone for me. I am a law student and know that I am going to be wearing a lot of suits in my life. Now I know I can still make my own clothes even when I’m a professional :)

    I love this! I have made the skirt and the pants, but now I see I will have to go all the way and do the jacket….

    Yes, we do like it! This is just lovely. I think it’s fun that you made a shirt to match the jacket lining.

    Wow! Great job! I love how the jacket lining matches the blouse…
