  1. Love this! I can totally see this in a nice light linen suiting for spring or a fine whale corduroy for fall.

  3. I have a piece of black and mudcloth I would make the jacket out of and then coordinate it with the pleated skirt in a white poly chiffon or a lightweight linen.

  5. Oh, I feel terribly naughty for commenting because I'm such a lurker, but that's a LOVELY pattern!

    I've been on the hunt for a suit like that in a light green, perhaps even minty, wool crepe, to wear to work in March/April.

  6. Oh! I love vintage patterns, and have just the fabric: I have a couple of wools in my stash - 1 in dark blue with green check/plaid, and another in a brown check.

  7. That's so beautiful! I would make it with the pleated skirt on a pale pink cotton for the spring.

  8. Loving the perky smiles of the pattern girls - I think I'd go for a plain linen at least for the jacket, probably in a dark colour - maybe navy. Thanks

  9. I might just be on a polka dot kick today but I think this would look amazing in a navy with tiny yellow dots. Classy and whimsical

  10. natural linen with shiny black buttons!

  11. Whoo hoo! That's so lovely. I would make a dozen versions.

  12. I'm a size 32! Serendipity. For me, this would look great in a funky linen something playful and unexpected like Melody Miller or Anna Maria Horner. Matching fabric covered buttons, of course!

  13. A slim skirt version, in light weight pin corduroy of a fabulous eye catching pea green, finished off with
    self covered buttons, worn with white accessories and a cheeky wink!

  15. Wonderful pattern!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    I'd love to see this is in a deep emerald green cotton!

  16. I think this would look fab in silk.

  17. I think the top skirt suit ensemble needs to be made out of a fabric with small pinstripes!

  18. I am thinking chamray...it would go with so many summery things i own :) thank you for the giveaway!

  19. Ooh...love this! I have a linen/rayon blend in my stash that would be a perfect match for this pattern. It might also be cute with a solid for the jacket and a print for the skirt. Hmmm...a lot of possibilities for this little ensemble.

  20. I'm only a lurker and unfortunately would need the next size up! But I do have the most exquisite pastel slub silk which would be perfect for this. Please don't enter me in the draw - I really only commented to say how much I love reading your blog.

  21. It's just begging to be made up in linen for a summer evening event, like a summer wedding, isn't it? The most obvious choice would be pastel colours, but I don't wear pastels, so I would go for jewel tones. Emerald green. That's for the pencil skirt version. The pleated skirt version would be perfect for a matching but mismatching set... say, big black flowers on a cream linen for the skirt, plain cream linen for the jacket, and matching trimmings on both, like, say, if there was a splatter of red in the flowers, then red buttons and black trim on the jacket, or finishing the sleeve openings with the floral fabric.

  22. I'm not commenting to win the pattern (it would be too small for me) but, I remember my mother making a pale blue and white pinstripe seersucker suit out of this very pattern! Brings back good memories, She would often make my sister and I outfits to match hers.

  23. Lovely pattern, so versitle. Either one would look good in a light blue and white striped searsucker with red trim and buttons. I would wear it to a luncheon with a red hat and shoes with white gloves.

  24. I love this pattern! I think I'd use cotton for the pencil skirt version and maybe silk or satin for the fuller skirt!

  25. Overheard Entry #1:

    "Lady bountiful is at it again."

    "Mmm hmmmm."

    "Should we offer up military canvas, burlap, or jute as fantasy fibers?"

    "She'd catch on to that faster than lint to the back of a sweater."

    "Alright, we'll just go with a washable blend from the clearance bin."

    "Like a tasteless re-gift, offered up with smile."

    "Mmmm hmmmm. Our blend is a 50/50, guile with bile."

    [head thrown back, spoken in a stage whisper] "She'll never know."

  29. I'm SO loving this pattern! I can see it in a cotton sateen in 1960s airline hostess colours. I would have to research different airline uniforms and pick the colour combos that I like best.

  34. Since it is nearly summer, I'm thinking linen in light blue, yep, just like the picture. For winter, probably a wool, not too heavy though, since I live in Florida.
