Safari suit

Hi friends,

    Today I went out shopping with my DD. Actually she shopped and I gave opinions when requested. I love shopping with her because she is so confident in her style and fashion choices.
     While we shopped I had her to take a picture of my outfit,made recently from an OOP Vogue pattern.

                                                                       Here I am

It passed the wear test. I was comfortable and cool (temperature was in the mid 80s today). The fabric is a polyester blend listed as "spring suiting". I made the jacket in view A. I think it is too short. Next time,and there will be a next time, I will make it the length featured in view B or C.
     The only adjustments needed were a full bust adjustment. I like it and will make it again.

      Next up is, the project I started this morning,Vogue 8813.

     I was able to get it cut and partially sewn this morning. That's because it has no interfaced pieces, no lining,no zippers or buttons.  I didn't feel like doing pattern adjustment and choose this pattern because of it's loose,easy fit. So far its coming along nicely. I hope I can finish it before the weekend is over. I hope you have some quality sewing time this weekend.

This looks great on you and I can understand why you would want to make it again. Which is interesting because it's on my sewing list for fall...great minds, huh!

What a classy pulled together ensemble. It's just right for the weather we are having right now. It'll take you further into fall and them you can pull it out again for Spring. Love the color combination too.

Very nice suit. To answer your knitting question, I just really wanted to learn to knit outerwear, I checked out books and religiously watch knitting daily and any other knitting/crochet programs I can find. Raverly is a great knitting resource. You can do it, just pick a simple pattern and go for it.
