Jersey Suit Styled Day to Night

Added Apr 21, 2014

I wanted to make a classic suit with a twist for the spring and summer time. I made my skirt suit all in these wonderful Bare Knits fabric. The rib knits are a great weight for blazers and dresses and the interlock knits are better for drapey garments that are meant to be lightweight. Read more about the fabric I used and my garment construction here.

The end result of my outfit is perfect for business in the spring and summer months, and it is easy to take this outfit from day to night with just a few accessory changes. I love the jade, white and tangerine color combo!

Material Notes

Medium and lightweight jersey




Spring, Summer

    Hi Meg,

    Beautifully made, really expert finishing. I have a question for you about this pattern, if it’s ok. Could you please tell me if you think the jacket would work in a non-stretch fabric, like gabardine? I’ve got a great green gabardine I’d like to use, but I’m not sure if this jacket would be comfortable without the stretch? Thanks for your help!
