} catch(err) {} I’ve used ribbons on this suit to bring the pink out on this suit. I bought the fabric from Fine Wools Direct before it closed down. It’s a stretch woven so it’s comfortable to wear. The jacket is Simplicity 4698 view c so I could make it up quickly and just experiment with the ribbon. The ribbon has a slight water mark on it so it’s a slightly shiny and matt at the same time.
The skirt is Vogue 7971 view c however, I’ve ignored the uneven hem, because I’m short and I don’t think I could really pull this off somehow.
The day/night I wore this suit was a high profile pseudo society do, and Megan Gale’s managing agent was at the function, as were a few high profile David Jones representatives. Not bad for a home sewer and longtime wall flower.
So far I’ve experimented wearing a silver jersey top underneath the jacket so this spring I’ll experiement with a silver/grey silk shirt that I have hiding in the closet somewhere.
