Ann you made a very nice outfit,you are right that you do need to put in the shoulderpads that will solve the problem.In couture suits it is often the whole garment which will be interfaced except the sleeves, but sometimes they also are interfaced but with a different weight interfacing that depends on the fabric.

Thanks for bringing the pattern to our attention! I have some fabric that's been ageing for quite a while, waiting for a good Chanel-esque pattern; I'm definitely going to consider this one!

I love the treatment with the fringe. Any chance of a close-up shot with the braid? Mademoiselle Coco would approve, the ensemble looks great on you.

Wow.....very nice. The designer details of the dyed to match braid and the fringed selvedge are great additions. Thanks for this review.

Ann, absolutely beautiful! I have never made a lined jacket (or just plain jacket like this), but with your recommendation, I will put it in my wish list. I also like the shape of the skirt. The style is very elegant and it fits you quite nicely. Thank you for your review!!

Another great outfit - I especially love that flirty little skirt. Is that the Cafe Society? I so loved it but the coloring wasn't right for me so I opted for the turquoise suiting.

That is so soft and pretty. The skirt has graceful lines.

Very nice. I love the bias skirt instead of the straight one you usually see with this jacket. The fringe is a nice touch too. You look beautiful in it.

Georgene: I've added a close up of the fringe. I hope that helps. It took quite a while to braid that! Gigi: yes, it is Cafe Society. I'll look forward to seeing your turquoise suit.

Ann, thanks for the close-up. It looks even better than I thought. Very nice fabric and treatment. It does look better with the shoulder pads. You're hired!

Ann, this suit has the appearance of a couture ensemble. Unfortunately, this Vogue pattern is no longer in print--and a check with Vogue Patterns gave me the information that they do not have any leftovers! She who hesitates . . .

Ann, Thank you! I have been looking at Chanel type patterns and I may just pick this one up! I know I'll have to lower the bust darts and do adjustments there as well-pretty standard with Vogues anyway. I would like to make a Chanel style project complete with a golden linked chain as weight in the jacket hem with a contrasting bias trim; this looks like it's just perfect and offers a nice variation too with the front closure of the jacket!

gosh, that's really stunning! Love the bias skirt with the straight-grain jacket... very appealing and a bit more feminine than your standard straight-skirt suit.
