I planned this outfit back in 2016, but never got around to making it until 2020, when I decided to challenge myself to make it within a week, for a YouTube video.
I was only able to finish the blouse and skirt during the challenge, and I have yet to come back and make the jacket (or the other garments I cut out at the time).
I should really make the two pairs of pants, as I think I would get a lot of wear out of them! I am finding I want increasingly higher-waisted pants in my daily wardrobe, and I think that the 1940s silhouette for pants can be really flattering!
I have a jacket and pants cut out from the brown fabric pictured above. I think it'll make a very smart suit.
The darker teal fabric on the left is going to make a skirt and another pair of pants. The lighter teal fabric on the right will make a couple of blouses to pair with them.
I love what you've made so far! I think I've got that pattern, but never used it - perhaps I should dig it out.ReplyDelete
It's a pretty versatile one!Delete
This is a nice style on you. Very flattering! The green accessories are a lovely touch and contrast well with your hair.ReplyDelete
Thanks! I love wearing green. :)Delete
