Rosy Chants :-)

Added Feb 24, 2015

Mykolayv, Ukraine






Although these are, in fact, two projects I decided to add them as one because I really think they will be worn as a suit.
The first was a skirt, nothing special: narrow with a slot in the central back seam. I had to add a band but didn’t on some unknown reason so hope it won’t be rotating too much:-)

But the leader of the outfit is a jacket, of course, I fell in love with it from the first sight and was sure I would make it. So here it is! I made 3/4 sleeves with cuffs and made the decorative clasp myself.
How to make both can be found here: http://wittyprettyhandy.blogspot.com/2015/02/pink-chants-i-have-neither-rosy-nor.html
I’m sure it would be my best outfit this summer. I like it very very much!

The white blouse is not new but I couldn’t find the issue right now so will add the information later.

Material Notes

The skirt is made from viscose and cotton blend jacquard so hope it will be good for summer and so didn’t line it.

The jacket is made from linen and it is very soft so as I’m afraid the jacket can lose the shape, I made top stitches along almost all of the seams.
The flower-pin is made of organza.

    Beautiful !!!! Lovely suit ! All your fine handiwork is awesome, love the clasp and the bead work. I never thought to do a flowered bracelet; so nice. Your photos/poses are great. Would be a wonderful outfit for Easter.

      Thank you, Rita! You know I thought about Easter, too. Once read that there was a tradition to wear a new hat on the day and my granny always kept to the rule to sew a new dress for the holiday. Maybe it is the very case:-)
