Swing Suit

Vogue 2444 is one of my recent projects.  And although I was unsure about the silhouette to begin, I am converted!  I love the swing jacket, and the sleeves.  Pure glamour!  And best of all, I have nothing else like it in my closet.  I feel like I have expanded my wardrobe horizons.   Sometimes stepping out of one’s comfort zone can be a good thing!

While the suit was in its planning stages, I remembered this hat that I made years ago.  It has been seriously neglected and deserved a little time out of the hatbox.

As always, more pictures and construction information may be found over on my blog, Lilacs & Lace.
