Jacket and Skirt Project Complete!

I hope everyone enjoyed the Easter holiday weekend!

I've finally found the time to post a few pictures of my last two projects. The top from Simplicity 4412 has six views for various jacket styles. For this version I used view D that has tie ends for the collar. Simple princess seams, four-button closure and the sleeves are long of course and I just machine stithced the hem. The skirt is Simplicity 5914 also has several versions and lengths. View A was the choice from this pattern. I wanted a long skirt. The pattern has two main pieces for front & back, side front and back, plus the facings. This skirt has a side zipper inserted. The fabric is from Fabric Mart, purchased several months ago. I will probably make this skirt again in a short version.









And finally, here is a picture of me wearing the McCalls 5597 (my husband peeking over my shoulder). Shhh! I think I may have gained a pound or two since this suit was complete! OH NO!! Well, I will have to take care of that before I wear it again!

Oh...that suit looks gorgeous on you!!! That's the pic I've been waiting for! And the ties on the jacket, I was wondering how that would look on a real garment as opposed to the pattern drawing. VERY nice!
