Suit jacket pattern, Simplicity S-128 and skirt pattern, Advance 8443
Did you join us in the Vintage Suit Sew Along? It’s been keeping some of us vintage sewists busy for the last few months.
Inspiration for my dream suit
I opted for a lovely houndstooth fabric that was passed to me by a friend de-stashing, and for this I re-vamped one of my best hats, adding some fabric to co-ordinate with the suit.
I took my time with the toile, and getting the best fit….
And I’m really happy with how it turned out, the shaping of the jacket is very true to the pattern illustration, with a nice wide hip skimming hem.
Some detail, bound buttonholes, cuffs and side seam pocket.
I have many more photos on my blog, and you can have a look at the making posts there too! Also, there are a couple of other makers working on their suits, soon to be shared, so take a look at the other makes while you’re there x
