Is the fur bit separate so you can mix and match with other accessories?

It's actually not.. I hand-basted it on so I could remove it at any time to maybe use in another project.
I should probably add some snaps to it to make it easily removable, though! Thanks for the idea  Grin

Thank you all for the nice comments! Smiley
I think I might just wear my hair down since it covers the collar decently, and I can't think of a way to fix it.

Thrift stores are definitely the way to go when you need fabrics like wool.  Grin

Since one of my favourite bands, Miss Derringer, will be playing in LA on my 18th birthday, I decided to make a two-piece suit to wear! I made a red suit for the very first time I saw them live, but I thought it would be best to make another. The jacket came from a 1950's dress jacket pattern, but I added long sleeves with cuffs and removed the buttonholes. I used the same pencil skirt pattern that I drafted a while ago... I've made about four skirts with that one pattern! Cheesy The whole thing took me less than a week to finish, and that is with school!
The cost of the suit is about... $15? The fabric was $8.95, and that was for a ton of nice, not-so-itchy and soft black wool. The fur piece cost $3.95... I just had the old buttons in my stash, but I got them for about $1 from where I used to work. I got everything from the thrift store, so I can feel good about the repurposed materials!

The collar is kind of uneven, but I'm still working on that.. my birthday is on April 9th, so I have time!
Hope you like it!  Smiley

This is amazing! I LOVE low brow art! I love Lisa Petrucci and Mitch O'Connell and Shag and....well, the list could go on and on.

Thanks Smiley
Hehe, we almost named our new dog Shag after the artist (and the fact that he is shaggy)!  Cheesy

Thank you all, again!

No problem for the zipper link--now I can make some more dresses without being ashamed of the backside! haha Grin

holy awesome--way to shred those pleats!  i personally find pleated things a little intimidating, good on you for conquering them.

Thanks! I did it all in one Monday night. I think ripping the pleats out took the longest next to separating the skirt, lining, and waistband! What a pain, but it was better than buying a completely separate skirt or mismatching plaid Cheesy

Thank you all for the nice compliments! Smiley
