What I Wore
New Look 6853 w/ Simplicity 4273, made back in March 2011. Of the few suits that I've made, this one is my favorite, at least for now...lol
The suit has held up very well being that it is machine washed & line dried. However, I had to reattach the chain at the hemline... well rather reinforce the stitching, but other than that... love the suit. Normally I prefer wearing a tank top under the jacket, but decided to wear a button-up blouse... nice diversion. My daughter told me I look so Anita.Hill like, minus the CT drama... ummm yeah.
On the Sewing front, I've cut another Simplicity 4273, and playing 3 card monty with a few jacket patterns to pair with the pants: Vogue 1279, Simplicity 2229, & Butterick 5619.
Until then.......... Have a Great Week
