As seen in the 1950's...

When I found this picture on Pinterest, I knew I wanted to try and make my own version of this suit. Such a lovely design: Clearly 1950’s but so unusual. I love the sculpted lines of that jacket combined with the more normal close-fitting dress!
It took several attempts to draft a jacket pattern I was happy with, and it still isn’t exactly like the jacket in the picture, but I got there in the end.
I made my suit from a knit fabric, so it is even comfortable to wear.

    50’s styling with ’15 comfort – what could be better than THAT?? You look amazing in your new suit-dress.
