This is a gorgeous suit. Perfection! It combines the beautiful sleeve flounce into a tailored look which is very feminine and also very sophisticated, and you did a terrifuc job of making it. Your workmanship looks perfect.

Beautiful suit that I'm sure you will (and did) receive many compliments on. I love the jacket. The sleeves look as if they resemble the Hibiscus Shirt from Sewing Workshop, a pattern I love. Wonderful combination of skirt and jacket.

What a beautiful, feminine suit and of course I'm a sucker for the gorgeous perfection of the lining. Completely lovely and I imagine very flattering.

Another beautiful garment. I love the color and fabric. Excellent job. I also like the simplicity, but it still looks like mother-of-the-bride.

Beautiful color and great lines! The two patterns really work together. I must admit I'm with you on wrinkled linen, though.

Goes so well together one would think skirt and jacket came from one pattern! I love it and will add it to my wish list! Congratulations!

Lovely suit. I like the flounces on the sleeves. Adds a soft touch.

Gorgeous outfit. Linen is meant to look crumpled so I'm sure no one even noticed.

Love it. It's such a flattering shape, and the sleeve and hem flounces are so graceful.

Debe, Love this outfit! Just bought a New Look pattern for myself and plan to use a retro turquoise print. I'm being very brave! PS: I just discovered this site, and read your review of your dd's wedding dress, BOY! can I relate to the bra issue as I recently finished a dress for dd's prom, and she had the same problem. She also had a problem with the adhesive not sticking, and we ALSO ended up pinning a different bra to her dress! (at dh's suggestion I might add!)

Very pretty suit.

It's beautiful! I made this a few months ago, same view, and although I had major issues due to using a stretch woven (interfaced parts didn't stretch, uninterfaced parts did), I also find it to be a very flattering design. I got a lot of compliments on it.

Lovely suit--very shapely. The flounces of the jacket go beautifully with the flare of the skirt--great combination of patterns!
