This is a suit I made from one of my favorite Du Barry patterns in a lovely khaki like colored linen. The drape is lovely and I feel like Im ready to see a lion in this number.

I added pockets to this design, and was very careful on the had tacking of the hem of the jacket as well as the pleated skirt.

I cut down the back a bit to make the drape fold over the belted back less. The look is well worth it and Im pleased with the back of this one the most out of the three I have made.

Those gatheres are just so delicious!

All progress is on the blog.
