"Spring Green" Suit Dress and Reversible Jacket

Added Apr 4, 2016

St. Louis, Misso...






I’m bringing out the pastel colors here for my Easter outfit! My pattern was a vintage Simplicity #4793 from year 1954. My fabric is a poly shantung and a rayon/acrylic boucle. My dress has extended pocket flaps, a fold-over front collar, kimono bias sleeves, and a wiggle skirt with a back vent. My jacket was made reversible in two different fabrics (since I couldn’t decide) with pockets looking like postage envelopes on both inside and out. To see more pictures and read more details, please visit my blog https://seamracer.wordpress.com/2016/04/01/spring-green-1954-easter-suit-set-a-dress-and-reversible-jacket/ I even made a matching skirt for the boucle side of the jacket – will post that soon.

      Thank you. I love making garments reversible on occasion – it’s like really nicely lining something but at the same time it’s so great to have more than one option with the same piece!

      Thanks, Mary. Making the jacket reversible was really easy, actually, just had to make double…
