Hey rockers and vintage lovers!
I completed my Easter Outfit! It's Simplicity 4044
As always my VINTAGE TRASH GLAM style has modified this lovely suit to my tastes hehe.
The Lipstick red is that "linen look" stuff. I dont think I want to work with THAT again..ugh..UNravel CITY! I would rather work with linen and be wrinkled I think. The black is regular linen.
The jacket is supposed to be lined, but I made a neck facing instead, it's a spring outfit and the material is already thick enough. I french seamed the CB and sides and then used bias tape around the edges of the neck facing. this material was a nightmare to edge finish. The French seams are a bit bulky with the thickness, but i was getting frustrated
CURVY GIRL ALERT! If you are pear shaped this pattern needed major modifications to fit! I chopped off 5 inches of the jacket length,added an inch in the back hip area, added 2 inches to the sleeves too. Also the back darts I let out quite a bit, and shortened to end at the hips.
For the skirt I added to the waist and hips, unfortch....too much. but it works with a top that I have to tuck in, such as my skully tank in the pics. I fixed it in the muslin now, and I am 75 percent done with a MATCHING red skirt for this!

WHAT SAY YOUS?
this is the pattern
note how her skirt drapes...THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN IN THE PLUS SIZE VERSION! my skirt will fold at the center front only. her folds all purty int he middle of the two panels, see? Nu uh...it don't happen in plus size. It DOES happen in the back though.
