I made this outfit and its match (see pic) for the One Pattern Wardrobe challenge on Pattern Review. I made four garments: hot pants and matching tunic, jacket and matching slacks. I used McCalls 2242, a vintage “coordinates” pattern from 1969 that I bought on Etsy. The jacket is very much in the spirit of late Sixties Yves Saint Laurent.
I created two outfits: one, youthful and hip, the other, more mature and elegant. Once again I am fortunate that my identical cousin Cathy was available to model these outfits on the streets of glamorous Chelsea, NYC.

Which Cathy outfit do you prefer?
I used two types of houndstooth I bought in the Garment District: one, a black and white oversized houndstooth double knit and the other a black and red printed cotton twill.
