I wanted an early sixties style mini-skirt suit. Something for work that was in a cute fabric and nice cut. I named it after Pattie Boyd as at the time of cutting I was reading Pattie’s biography – Wonderful life
The actual instructions for the jacket were not that great so I used the tailoring instructions from my sewing book. The book had recommended flannel underlining the bodice and sleeves which worked out nicely for the bodice, but as mentioned it was not ideal for the sleeves.

I used a vintage the button kit that I had bought from Fabric a Brac for both the front buttons and cuffs
