Simplified Suit - Kasia Variation
Added Jan 13, 2009
My version of Kasia for the Suit Variation Contest. I think this is my new favorite skirt. It was surprisingly easy to make. Thank goodness at least one of the three pieces was :) I’m also very proud of this piece- the zipper is awesome :) I will post lining pictures in a bit.
Alterations to the pattern:
- added a band onto the hem to “mimic” the top of my jacket (sort of)
- widened the waistband 1"
- shortened 1.5" because I’m short :)
- moved the zipper to the back and used invisible zipper instead of regular (looks so much better than I expected!!!)
- fully lined- so much easier than I expected
As always, see my blog for full details of the suit.
80% wool, 20% rayon, black twill weave from Fabric Mart- i love this fabric, but it’s somewhat difficult to work with :)
burdastyle again :) oh yeah, and i really can’t forget my husband for taking pictures for me! he puts up with so much :)
