As if! My friend and I have been wanting to do Cher and Dionne for years, and thought this would be a good year with the “Fancy” resurgence of the look. The outfit I made is a fitted suit jacket and pleated skirt and furry backpack. The cardigan sweater was bought and shortened. I added the large pearly buttons. The skirt pleats are 2 inch right hand folds, sewn for 1.5 inches fromt he waist band, with a flat placket in the front where the pleats change directions. The jacket was patterned from an existing blazer I had, I just shortened it 2 inches made the rounded edges square. The skirt was draped. Came together very easily.
My favorite projects are replicas. I’m detail obsessed and I promise this is accurate :)
