Your American Model will model this 1940's inspired suit. The Jacket has pleated detail both in front and back. Buttons that hold down the slim peplum in front and the pleated split in the back. A cute little blouse is worn under the jacket or take off the jacket for a really smart look. I did this suit in a soft shade of lavender silk. The blouse is done in a semi-sheer fabric.
This is what it looked like when that was done. I haven't got my lights up in my photo booth yet so the quality of the picture isn't very good. But you get the idea. It's in rough construction because all I'm looking for here is fit. I am also making sure that all the design elements are where I want them and working out right.
A few of you have asked about the pattern drafting process. So, I think on a future pattern I will take photos of the process and post them. Didn't think about doing that with this design until I got to this point.
Well until next time.
