Wow. Looks wonderful. It is hard to believe it is an 'easy' pattern as it looks so detailed!

This suit is very smart and sophisticated. I have trouble with shoulders sometimes, I don't know if the excess upper sleeve fit is a shoulder fit issue? I never thought I had narrow shoulders but I often have to trim patterns down.

I love this suit. What really sets it apart are the buttons and the mandarin collar. Conservative yet stylish.

I made this jacket last year and love it -- wear it a lot. Yours looks so nice on you.

Very nice suit. I'm sure this will be a great wardrobe enhancement.

Aek, your suit is so smart looking. But there must be a glitch in the Vogue pattern info photo. It shows a slinky evening dress that doesn't look anything like a tailored suit.

Your buttons do so much to brighten up and add interest to the suit. Great job, I like the fitted look.

I just pulled this jacket pattern out Sunday and was so pleased to see your review today! What interfacing did you use? Did you interface just where the pattern suggested? The outfit looks great.

Wow, what a gorgeous suit. As Christine A says, "hard to believe it is an 'easy' pattern". Looks stunning on you and so beautifully fitted.

Nice suit! The buttons really make it unique. Thanks for the tip for a quick, easy suit pattern.

I love how your suit turned out. I also have this pattern. I made the pullover top and never got back to buying material for the jacket and pants. After seeing how yours turned out I will have to make a suit also. Just have a few other projects I have to get done first. Thanks for the review!

that looks sooooooooooo good. My next project (someday!) is going to be a suit. Nice job.

Your suit really looks professional--perfect for the college job fair, and a great fit on you as well. Well done!

JeanEsther, I used a plain woven cotton fusible I picked up at Joann's. I followed the directions and interfaced the collar and front facing. If I were to make this again I would probably choose something a little less stiff for the front facing - maybe Armo Weft.

I don't think anyone is going to mistake you for a UPS man anytime soon. Great, quick, smart looking outfit. (Super buttons.)

What a great suit and what a great review! One of my fave vintage 40s patterns is for a jacket that looks very similar to yours, even down to the split dart. Your suit is beautiful! Very well done!

Very smart looking. Good luck with the interviews.

WOW! That is fantastic. I love the fabric and the buttons. I think you can say that you are far more advanced than a beginner.

Em's Summer - I also love the vintage style suits! One of the things that attracted me to using this pattern was that it wasn't the typical blazer style suit.
