I really liked this Vogue pattern for the jacket, but I have to say it was not the easiest to make.
The skirt, on the other hand, was extremely easy to make. A very simple straight skirt with a slit in the back instead of a kick pleat. The fabric for this skirt was another Chanel and rather expensive, so I purchased just one yard and had to make do. Therefore, I fringed the hem and love the way it turned out.
Both the jacket and the skirt are made of fabrics purchased from Helen Haughey, www.helenhaugheydesigns.com.
And, of course, I must picture Miss Cuddles, who is always there to make sure I am doing the job right.
