The 3 pieces of this capsule came together well, though I changed the waistband of the skirt and had to re-do the center piece of it. It’s the result that counts though. The jacket is not a very “every day” jacket. It has a bit of a vintage vibe which is also not my usual style but I quite like it.
Don’t you think that these buttons were made for this combination? I went to a shop in a village close to me and found these while the garments were only cut and not sewn together at all. Such a lucky find, especially as there were only 4 left and I needed that exact amount.
The jacket is best worn closed, so it will be worn with a camisole underneath, not with a blouse. The fabric that I had in mind for a blouse will go with the skirt and the trousers. I’ll add that blouse at some point. For now this is a project done!
The patterns are from Burda magazine, the May issues of 2002 (jacket and skirt) and 2006 (trousers).
