Jacket from pattern, but made 2 skirts from the same fabric – a pencil skirt (shown) and an a-line one as well. All about versatility! The jacket took forever, mostly in making sure the collar and lining were perfect. This is the first time I’ve made a jacket collar and didn’t mess it up so much I had to ditch the project. And, I could not find a decent closure for the life of me…this one is ok, but not quite my style although it will certainly look nice for work.
Ah, my first little suit…
Not sure, some kind of plyester blend. Closure, fully lined.
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
