This was such a fun outfit to make! I mean, like super fun! I was browsing through one of my 1940’s pattern reference books and came across a suit which featured three waist darts which had been top stitched. I thought it was such a feminine take on a blazer jacket and went to work creating a pattern and putting it together.
Well several 1950’s musicals and one DVD of I Love Lucy Season 5 later, I was done! I paired the suit with a light cream blouse I already owned, and put with the gored skirt….well my little heart just about palpitated out of my chest! 🙂
And while I absolutely adore this creation, I ended up creating it a little too big for myself….so I put it up for sale on my Etsy Shop for someone else to love and enjoy!
In addition, I also wanted to share with you all some lovely closeups of this very fun little project!
