S2229

S2229 This was sewn up during the hot hot summer!  Just had the chance but  I wore it this past Sunday for church and it was perfect in our now cooler temperatures.  I had a mishap with the jacket.  Not while wearing it, but before I could even put it on.  I'm not going to tell you what I did except I had to re-make a section of the back.  Totally my fault.  But as they say,  all is well that ends well.   Here is my review: 
Pattern Description:  Misses' & Miss petite jacket, pants and skirt. Threads sewing pattern collection.
Pattern Sizing:  K5(8-10-12-14-16)  U5(16-18-20-22-24)
Fabric Used:  A suede fabric from Joann's
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?  Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow?  Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?   I liked the jacket.  Although I notice that I forgot to put the little floral design on the front.  Also, I usually don't like wrap type skirts.  This one was okay. 
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:  None.  I made it pretty much exactly as the pattern directions indicated. 
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?   I doubt I'll sew again, but I do recommend. There are so many other patterns I want to make.
Conclusion:  Both the jacket and skirt are fully lined.  I think an advanced beginner could make this.

You look great in this suit. It is a stunning combo of a Jackie-O of the Sixties and Today's Fashion. Way to go!
