S2899 Jacket & B5147 Skirt

Simplicity 2899 is out of print but still available on their website. Butterick 5147 is still available.

As described on the pattern envelope, I chose the round collar jacket with the straight banded sleeves. The skirt is an a-line with front & back darts and back zipper. It is fully lined. The jacket fabric is a moleskin I've had in my stash. The fabric used for the skirt is a mystery as far a content and where it came from. I can't recall when or where it was purchased. It's embroidered with sequins on what looks like butterflies. I still have quite a bit left and have no clue what I'd make out of it. But it goes well with the jacket.

Here's a photo of me wearing the outfit today after church.

Here's the back view showing the topstitching. I topstitched around the collar, the back seams and around the sleeve bands.

Next up will be a couple of tops. Fast & easy. I signed up to participate in the Over The Top 15-Day Sewing Challenge initiated by Faye. I'm a couple of days behind. It started April 1st and goes thru the 15th. It's been a busy weekend, non-sewing though.
