The pattern I had in mind for this fabric was Vogue 8887 which was a jacket with matching skirt. I made the skirt but I hated the fit on me so I decided to make Simplicity 2701 skirt instead to match the Vogue 8887 jacket.

For the challenge I think I had to take a few 'progress' photos so below we can see my progress hehe!
I think this was one of the first projects that I made sure I ironed every single time I stitched something together! I even moved the ironing board into my sewing room where its now found its home. I really liked this jacket I think I may have made it a little big but at least its going to be really comfortable and warm during winter. The skirt pattern is so simple but its really cute and so glad I decided to make it instead. I did buy a heap of fabric to make this Vogue 8887 pattern and ended up with lots left so I will probably get another skirt I am thinking a slim pencil skirt for the next one.

I have to say after I took some photos of me wearing this outfit I felt like I transported back to 1995 the era of 'Clueless' but I love this suit and the fabric!
