Dior New Look inspired suit


This is my favourite make so far, a dior inspired suit from Gertie’s Book for Better Sewing.  The jacket was made from a vintage find which cost £5, and its pictured with two six panelled skirts; one in crepe and one in boiled wool, lovely and cosy. I really like the nipped in waist look, so flattering!  More on my blog here.
