Finally finished the off white silk blouse that goes under the Chanel jacket. Don't for a minute think because I've been sewing all my long life it's easy. I struggle and wonder at times if I'm totally loosing it! With this simple little blouse I had to correct twice the two ends where they come together and are buttoned in back, one being 5/8's inch at least longer than the other. Now how does this happen I say? I won't even go into the fits the buttonholes gave me until I figured out my machine's buttonholer to my satisfaction.
My cute pattern came today from Etsy, this one.
I have ordered Dupioni white silk for top B and a teal/navy gabardine for the skirt.
Enlarge this and take a close up look it's just gorgeous a Chanel/Lagerfeld type suit, who wouldn't want one of these smart little outfits!
