Brisbane Spoolette high tea combo

Earlier this month the Brisbane Spoolettes held their annual high tea and I loved joining them again this year.

It just so happened I was testing Simplicity 2154 retro 1960s jacket and I used this stretch woven fabric for it.

The jacket pattern isn’t designed to be closed so while I added a snap closure to the front of the jacket, it did affect the look of the back of the jacket.

On the Wednesday night I decided to grab my block patterns and come up with a dress to go with it. 

So really this is my test dress and I do need to make some adjustments to the bust under the arms.

If I had the chance to wear this outfit again I would. The fabric is super comfortable and unlined so it’s prefect to wear in humid weather.

Thanks Brisbane Spoolettes for putting on another high tea event. You all looked fabulous.
