The Vintage Suit Sew Along – More completed makes

Katherine McRae Vintage Suit Sew Along

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.

Isn’t it fabulous? I really want to make my own now, even more….You can read about her suit making and finished photos here on her blog.

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!
