Sew Much Talent-UFO Challenge

Sew Much Talent has a challenge that ends tomorrow.  I managed to get one thing done so far.  Out of Print V2887 that features a jacket and skirt.  I made the skirt which is straight, lined and below mid-knee with princess seams. 
The waist is faced with ribbon, and there's a back zipper and slit.

The fabric is a home dec suede from Joann's that was suitable for
 apparel.  I don't have enough to make the jacket out of this but plan to in the future in another fabric and the skirt.  Since it's a suede fabric, I consider this a sort of beginning to my fall sewing.  I have a knit fabric that I planned to use with this so I may start that in a few weeks.  I still have lots of summer sewing I want to complete.  The next item from the UFO list is a blouse that is certainly summertime.  I hope to complete it tonight for the deadline of the SMT challenge.

Such a pretty color and nice skirt... you did a great job on the finishing details. Looking forward to seeing the fabric you will pair with it. My plan was to participate because I have a jacket & a dress that needs to be finished, but time wasn't on my side.
