My big great fabulous suit
This is the big one, the one project I've been dreading, the one I kept putting off and off because it scared the heck out of me.
I found this gorgeous linen blend fabric with floral embroidery, it just took my breath away. Every pattern I could find for suits were too intricate, i.e. too many pieces, and I just wanted a pattern with as few pieces as possible so I wouldn't have to butcher the fabric.
It's probably the last time I ever make a lined jacket, because let's face it, I live in fricking California, but it was good practice and the fabric does itch a little. I did have some help from mom, but COME ON! Look at it, it's my biggest and fanciest project thus far and I am super happy with it.
Now, someone needs to get married in the fall/winter so I can wear the thing :D
