Welcome Spring!

 
Pattern: Butterick 5476 OOP Diahann Carroll pattern purchased from Ebay last year.
Misses' /Misses' Petite Jacket & Skirt
Semi fitted, lined, below hip jacket has slightly extended shoulders, shoulder pads, contrast yokes and long sleeves. Semi-fitted, straight, lined skirt, below mid=knee, has elastic back waistband and back with side zipper.


 Sizes: 8 - 24
 
Fabric: Gold polyester poplin  with gold polyester lining from Vogue online.

Accents: Black piping & 1 piece iron on applique added before adding lining.

Alterations: decreased 1" swayback, added 4" to skirt

I always sew first and finish seams with the serger. I've found that if I serge the sleeves to the lining it gives a different look with added thickness on the upper sleeve.

This is a fun pattern with different variations/creative designs. I did fail to show the inside lining, but you've seen it over and over again.

    1. Thank you! I pulled all of my hats from the boxes last year and made a list of the colors. Then, I started purchasing the fabric to match the hats.
