>Suit, Circa 1937, Part II

>Ok, the jacket is finished! I’m really pleased with the way it came out. I’m going to take a little break from the suit and try to whip up a pair of shorts for the weekend, but I’ll be back on it next week. I’m really excited about the possibilities of this suit. I can wear the jacket with a tan or white skirt, the skirt with a tan or white jacket or pretty blouse- I just love mix and match! And so appropriate for the wardrobe saavy 30s gal, too! I’m bigger than the form, but you get the idea.

    >Looking good! I think you could have gone with either pattern — the houndstooth does (as I suspected) read as a neutral since it is so tiny. Yay!
