I made this suit jacket for the Suit Variation Contest using the Steffi pattern. The skirt and blouse will be posted soon! There are too many pictures to do them all at once :)
This jacket took something like 20 hours to complete! Crazy! I had about 1 1/2 weeks to do this, because of Christmas presents! It was really a challenge, but fun to do! Next suit I will give myself more time :)
Every seam inside is finished- using my imitation serger stitch. The entire piece is lined/faced. I wanted to make something I will be able to wear professionally, and since I’m an engineer, it couldn’t be too artsy.
See my blog for more info.
80% wool, 20% rayon (I think)- black with a loose twill weave… makes it very prone to unraveling
