The Bow Suit

Auckland, New Ze...






I drafted this pattern after seeing it in a magazine, and made a pencil skirt to match. The sleeve heads are slightly gathered, and the patch pockets also have gathers and a bow detail. The back skirt has a gathered peplum with a matching bow.
More info on my blog here, and here, including a tutorial on tailored sleeve vents. I may upload the pattern at some stage if enough people are interested.

    The fit of this jacket and its details are absolutely wonderful. It would be great if you have time to upload the pattern.

    Wooooow what a gorgeous suit, it suits you so well! Thank you so much for the inspiration :) I’ve been thinking about the wardrobe I will need when starting my career, and this is exactly in the style I imagine I would like to wear: formal with feminine details and nicely fitted. If you ever drop the pattern over here, I’ll be watching, but I already took note of your comments on tutorial on the sleeve and what you think about the fabric you used and about underlining. I hope you enjoy your beautiful creation :)

    This is amazing. I can’t believe you drafted this jacket – I am so jealous. I’ve only got minimal drafting skills, this is something I aspire to someday.

    Very impressive! The style of this suit is wonderful. The 3/4 length sleeves, the lapel, the pockets, the skirt – I couldn’t dream up a lovelier suit myself. It really has it all. I’d love to try my hand at it if you get the pattern up. Beautiful, beautiful craft. Thanks for sharing.
