First suit finished


  A day later than planned. I want to show you the full suit across the garments that I made  the past few weeks.



 I´m really pleased with this project, it´s not a dress (I don´t know if the original pattern is a dress ). So independent garments that it´s easier to make new combinations with other garments.


 If you read my humble blog long ago, you know that I love the accessories, they are an indispensable part of an outfit. But also the details of each of the items are important.


 I usually take longer time than planned to sew a garment, usually the ideas on how to improve or take a "personal touch" to the garment in the process assaulted me and I hold to pursue my idea. It´s true that I can take more time... but when I finished it, the pleasure is infinite!


 It´s lovely to dicover some tips on the skirt, the folds are aligned to  the sides, front and back are free, so ther isn´t "lump" and shapes your figure.
                            Now ,  to the next project. Happy week !!!

  1. You have done it again. The dress looks gorgeous on you, and the accessories that you've chosen just add to it.

    I love the hair broach also. I've just recently gotten some tatting supplies, and now you've provided me with encouragement.

    Also I love that petticoat!

    I realy like the petticoat and will have to borrow your idea. I'm sure my little girl would love one just like yours and so would I.

  12. Beautiful! Love the drape of the skirt, and the fit of the blouse is amazing. I always find that taking a little while extra to get it right pays out in the end when it comes to sewing (I'm also a quite slow sewist).
    I've just wandered over here from Sew Retro, love your blog!
    Cheers!
