I fell in love with this suit design as soon as I saw it in Vogue’s pattern catalogue back in 2005. So much, in fact, that I copied the dark green color choice of the sketch illustrator – now I just need one of those fabulous tilt hats to complete the look!
This suit was pulled out of the closet for a special occasion: my Emerald Green Gown was featured in an article on December 18th by a local paper.
So when a photographer came to my apartment to take some photos for the article, I had to find something special to wear.
Now that I remember how much I love the skirt, you can bet that the pattern is going to be pulled out when I find some suitable fabric.
And although it is now out of print, the pattern is still available from Vogue.
Now if only I would hear some news about that Bernina sewing machine . . .
