It´s a Wonderful Life Suit finished



 I finished the suit of the film in January, " It´s a Wonderful Life". I´m very happy with the result, it´s a very stylish suit with which I feel very comfortable, since the average temperature wher I live is quite soft, the waistcoat is an ideal garment.

 I´m totally in love with the shape of the layer and the wieght it falls on my back, it looks totally majestic yet gentle woman, I feel like an English lady when I wear an umbrella and of course to wear thes suit I will have to use curl in my hair, it´s curious that a hairstyle check both the personality and image you want to project, I learned this only recently, since I started to photograph me with outfits I have come to see the importance of hairdo.





 Finally I chose to put the fabric covered buttons black skirt as suggested Lady Sarsaparrilla, these little details of the buttons and buckle in the back give the waistcoat a touch of distinction in contrast with the fabric squares Wales that make it very original, with the little push Sarsaparrilla (wink)
 I also want to thank Lauren and Ruth by their help with the name of the mitered corners, I haven´t great knowledge of English and sometimes the names used in English and Spanish for the same thing aren´t the same, so I often  can committing a bit silly with the language, your help is highly valued.



 Accessories .... when I have to wear an outfit the next day or when I finish one of them (like now), my mind works hard the night before at the time that we are under a good blanket and resting on the pillow, it tries to wander to accessories which I have at home can do better with these colors, or the look that I want to show...

 In this case, my mind got a lot of laps, but eventually I came to the conclusion that the suit is fairly complete in itself, so I just wore ablack knitted beret ( I was grateful at this moment in my termporary insanity ), stockings whit sewing completely hooked 40s look and a small brooch of my little collection ( pictured below)



 The skirt.... when I went to distribute the patterns to cut the skirt and necck vest, I found I had little more than a yard of black fabric, so I could not cut a pleated skirt, had to be a simple pencil skirt, the pattern of this skirt perfectly and even served on a piece of cloth for covering buttons.




 This skirt is a basic will spend a lot in my wardrobe this winter, for example, with this top of the previous outfit.... will... step by step, I´m getting a wardrobe sewn for me and combined with each other. 
 Mmm........ now I think I desperately need some color in my closet...

  5. Absolutely impressive suit. You look so perfectly vintage. I don't remember the suit from the movie, so now I have to rewatch the movie and keep an eye out for the suit. All your accessories are wonderful too. I love the cape.

  7. That's so gorgeous! What pattern did you use? It's a Wonderful Suit!

    I noticed the same as you about hair. I never used to put much effort into it other than washing and combing. Then blogging and I thought... It's a simple thing to do to look more polished.

    Your hair is adorable.

  12. This outfit looks too good! Your checkered fabric goes very well with the design of the top part and the "simple" black skirt fits you beautifully.
