I can’t hide the fact that was really excited when I heard Katherine of Miss Dixie O’Dare was planning to make a Marilyn Monroe inspired suit for the Vintage Suit Sew Along.
When I first saw Niagara many years ago, I too fell in love with the same blue suit.
Here are some of her photos.
I was pleased to see another Vintage Suit Sew Along project that involved making pants and a skirt to go with the jacket. Saranne Teale used a combination of patterns for her project.
Not only did I admire her plans, I loved her organisation! I initially wanted to do the jacket, skirt, slacks combo for my project too, alas I did not have enough fabric, and you can see why the idea would appeal, check out those slacks…
And the skirt and jacket out on the town… Fabulous!
There are a few more finished makes to share soon, I am lagging behind on my own, somewhat, here are some teasers of other makes lined up…
Jenn Steele’s plans…
Carla Sweetlove’s suit, check out that collar! Swoon.
And Beccie Leathley’s plans….I think we are all dying of sleeve envy.
Are you working on your suit ? How are you doing?
