This is the same self-drafted pattern that I used for this dress. This is my first project that required we to match horizontal lines so I’m glad I had this tried-and-true pattern to work with.

Much of the construction techniques I used are from Classic Tailoring Techniques: A Construction Guide for Women’s Wear.

I’f you’re interested in how the pattern was drafted, I posted all about it here. Come and say “hello!”

Material Notes

Lightweight wool men’s suiting
Bemberg rayon lining

      Thank you! I realized afterword that I’ve styled myself just like the woman from “Diary of a Sewing Fanatic”.
