Fashion Backward: A Hurried Vintage Vogue Suit

One glorious week of break before school starts.

And, instead of resting (as I should be) I have decided that I must have this suit before my break is over.  It’s a holdover from my summer sewing projects and I simply ran out of time when I was going to make it.  I have all the fabric and the notions and I’m going to be sewing away trying to finish it before I go back to the daily grind of homework, due dates and papers.

I’m currently working on the skirt and have it almost complete.  The front and back are sewn together and I’m working on piecing the waistband.  I hope to have a finished product tonight.  The jacket is a little complicated and time consuming, but I’ll manage.  It’s not my first jacket and it’s not fully lined, so that will save some time.  I’m quite determined – to quote my favorite heroine, Elizabeth Bennett.

Wish me luck!

    Ooh, that is beautiful!! Lots of luck and i can’t wait to see it :) I’m starting a new skirt tomorrow, but nothing as complicated as that!

  5. Hi Jen,

    I’ve almost got the skirt ready for unveiling. I had some difficulty with the zipper, but I conquered it. ;) All that’s left for me to finish is the hem. I should have some photos up later today. Thanks for your vote of confidence!
