While I do need to get started on my daughter's spring wardrobe, I decided to spend a little time and attention on my wardrobe - particularly career-wear. As a teacher, I don't always have to dress that nice, but I like to. I think kids should see what a professional looks like.
I made the jacket from Butterick 5712 and the dress from Vogue 1303.
I will probably wear the blouse with the suit I am working on - B5619. I have the jacket complete and the skirt ready to sew. The fabric is a tri-acetate suiting, a manmade fabric with a very nice hand and drape. It looks and feels expensive, but I got it for $6 a yard. (Score!)
The coordinating skirt (same pattern) is a basic yoked A-line. I hope to have it done in the next day or two.
I am not sure what project will be next, but I will likely switch gears and work on some more casual projects for me and an Easter dress for Gracie.
