Spring print suit

Added Aug 26, 2013

Johannesburg, So...






Print blazer with a black collar and black button paired with print roll up shorts.
Blazer has a black lining,with flap pockets and a slit at the back.
The shorts have a pockets,no waistband,made a facing instead as i felt the waistband will make the waist too high.Didnt make a turn up on the pants i roll them up i like the contrast of the reverse side of the fabric.
Patterns i drafted myself.
Fabric is a linen blend.

Material Notes

Used 1m fabric for the jacket and 1m polycotton for lining, 1 button and a zip i made shorter for the pants.




Cotton, Denim, Linen

    This is great fun! I love the zany print, perfect for spring! (Where I am it’s the end of summer, unfortunately!) Enjoy the rest of your spring sewing – look forward to seeing it!
