  1. User avater myMarilyn September 10th

    I would like these pieces in some coordinating prints and solids. Probably linen or poplin for the pants and jacket. Maybe silky prints for the top. I need a size 12 - 14.

  2. MsDaizy September 7th

    I would definitely choose a linen fabric. I am sure I would embellish with a silk charmeuse. Size 14-20

  3. fab54 September 6th

    I need size 4-12 and I will use ponte for the jacket

  4. User avater Susanc22 August 31st

    This pattern's pieces look just like something my high school daughter would wear. We'd probably choose a poplin or pique that would wear well at school and start with the skirt, peplum top, and jacket in size 14.

  5. J2B August 31st

    I'm really into jackets right now so would start with the jacket in a black and royal blue silk brocade I have in my stash. I could wear it for dressy occasions or with a pair of jeans. Size 4-12 is my size range. This is a great new coordinates pattern.

  6. G_Fox August 30th

    Linen blend
    Size 12-20

  7. User avater user-2131610 August 29th

    I would love to make any one of these pieces in a nice fresh, crisp poplin. I think I would do the same thing they've done in the pattern picture and and make some pieces in a print and others in a solid but not sure which until I actually shopped for fabric. I would need the pattern in the size 10-12. Good Luck to everyone!

  8. cweetgal August 28th

    I would love to use my cotswool plaid for the jacket. it will be warm and will look good with the seaming.

  9. Laurie_Brown August 28th

    I have some white cotton with an old fashioned rose print that I've been wanting to make into some kind of corset looking top; the skirt I'd use some soft, striped rayon I have.

  10. sailcocktail August 28th

    I would make the jacket and skirt I size 12-20 in a sage linen/cotton blend.

  11. User avater 2bzmom August 28th

    I never win this stuff but I always enter? I would love to have this in size 12-20 for myself.. It would be wonderful...

  12. User avater dsantil71 August 28th

    I thought D & E would be good in twill & the rest in silk & rayon blend. In sizes 12-20!

  13. MrsBrown August 28th

    I have remained in the comfortable and familiar world of quilting cottons for too long! I would challenge myself and make the skirt and top out of a silk-rayon or satin. Oooh...maybe I would get really crazy and try to adjust the pattern to make the skirt and top into a dress! (Size 4 - 12, please)

  14. AltiB August 28th

    This is a very nice pattern with lots of design possibilities. I have a lovely periwinkle blue silk dupioni in my stash that I would use to make the peplum top, and would use a darker shade in linen for the jacket and pants. Size 12 - 20 would work or me.

  15. SEWPAHRUMP August 27th

    I would make view A,B, out of a linen blend and add the jacket made of twill. Something in neutral shade for the linen blend and a bright color for the jacket. Might be a fun pattern to make. Thanks for this opportunity.

  16. SarahAiko August 27th

    I would make the skirt/top in a floral cotton, and the jacket/trousers in a coordinating stretch cotton or suiting fabric. size 12-20. Thank you!

  17. LeandaM August 27th

    I have a gorgeous green teal shantung that would make up beautifully for the peplum top with a black cotton sateen for the pants. (size 12-20) thanks.

  18. User avater sewnutt1 August 27th

    I would opt for a beige or yellow linen or linen/blend to make the camisole top and pants and skirt. On the camisole I would do some delicate hand embroidery of flowers and leaves. (yes, I still like it done by hand once in a while!) to highlight the waistline area from front to center back. I would use those same colors from the embroidery threads to embellish the underside of the skirt and pants hem and maybe the inside of the jacket edge. Love the subtlety of trims!

  20. User avater Loret August 27th

    I would make this in either with a pique or sateen...color alternating black and white or cream. I will need size 12-20...thank you very much! LOL

  21. timpson77 August 27th

    I love the fact that this pattern does not require the standard waistband. I love the cut of the pattern as well as the overall look and versatility - this allows one to mix and match fabrics to expand a wardrobe. Well done! Put me down for the 12-20 Size! Thank You!

  22. User avater Ree65 August 27th

    Love the corset-style top w/ peplum (view B). It would look great on me (sizes 12-20) in an emerald green linen blend :)

  23. user-234821 August 27th

    I would prefer doing these patterns, size 12-20, in a linen blend.

  24. user-234821 August 27th

    I would prefer doing these patterns, size 12-20, in a linen blend.

  25. luckysue August 27th

    I would use silk brocade or linen for the jacket and cotton backed silk or linen for the trousers. Size 12-20 please.

  26. 709501 August 27th

    I forgot to say - size 22. Thanks.

  27. 709501 August 27th

    I would make the pants and jacket using wool crepe and the top would be polished cotton.

  28. bermbroro August 27th

    super cute. organic cotton...and a silk blend.
    (size 12-20)

  29. bermbroro August 27th

    super cute.

    (size 12-20)

  30. SWoerner August 27th

    I love this pattern, I would use a nice crisp linen blend for the pants. the size of the patterns would be 12-20, Thanks.

  31. user-944239 August 27th

    I would make them all and out of organic cotton

  32. ceeshells August 27th

    I would need the size 12-20. I would see this in linen for the jacket and pants, either a royal blue or a turquoise. and the top in either handkerchief linen, or silk print. or for a really dressy effect, I would make the wide leg pants into almost gaucho style with a flowing silky print fabric, matching jacket and top in a neutral color.

  33. user-982422 August 27th

    I would use a cotton-backed silk for the jacket, view E. And I would probably add just a teensy bit of embroidery somewhere, just for fun. I would most definitely make the pants in a rayon blend to achieve a good drape. Washable rayon blend. (size 12-20)

  34. lovetosewsorselo August 27th

    I have my Winter wardrobe planned with making the jacket first in a Chinese red and gold embroidered brocade with black linen pants, and second (to go with the black pants, a pair in pale grey silk dupioni). I do adaptive sewing for myself so I'll also make all the items in this wonderful pattern in several different colors of Silk Essence - everything in size 12-20.
    (

  35. WinterBull August 27th

    The "jacket" and skirt in a solid color silk brocade. The corset (peplum) would be in a silk print to blend with the brocade and the peplum part would in the same silk brocade as the jacket & skirt. (size 12 - 20)

  36. thestitch August 27th

    For the pants, a cotton blend, twill, or poplin. The top in a silky floral. I'd like to win sizes 12-20.

  37. User avater jamaco August 27th

    A linen or cotton. I would make this in sizes 12-20.

  38. DBurchard August 27th

    I also would have to go with the linen. The crisp lines would be great in linen. I'd like the larger sizes.

  39. user-2434933 August 27th

    Forgot! For my daughter so size 2-12! Thank you!!

  40. user-2434933 August 27th

    I would make this top with lace underlined by a nude and the 'collar flaps' out of leather! Maybe the peplum out of leather as well to go over the pants or skirt!

  41. User avater sewold August 27th

    Linen or linen blend for casual or silk dupioni to really dress it up. The style would work for both. I could even see it in a light weight denim! (size 12-20)

  42. sandy830 August 27th

    The kind of fabric I would use for the Jacket E would be a linen blend in a solid color with the skirt C of a cotton/rayon blend in coordinating floral along with top A. If I wanted pants D, I would choose the same color as the jacket in a lightweight twill that would also coordinate with the floral print of top A. That way I could have several different looks for almost every occasion. This pattern could go from spring to summer to fall, depending on the color palette used.

  43. Lbeck858 August 27th

    I would use maybe a cotton blend for the skirt. Size 4-12

  44. User avater Harikleia August 27th

    I would use twill with a sateen finish to make B and D. (size 12-20). Thanks.

  45. User avater SharonPicone August 27th

    I would make D in a silk-rayon. I would need the size 4-12 pattern if I'm lucky enough to win (fingers crossed! :)

  46. User avater GypsyThread August 27th

    I love using different weight fabrics using the same patterns. Not sure if I'd start with a rayon or linen blend first. Shantung would be great for the jacket. Something with a light stretch might be nice for the pants. Although, I do love the feel of pants made from cotton poplin even though they wrinkle.
    The larger pattern size, 12-20, would be awesome. ~ Carey

  47. sewerdownunder August 27th

    I think that I would make the pants and jacket in a light weight linen or a cotton with some mechanical stretch. I think that I would need a size 12- 20 pattern. Hope I win!

  48. User avater msnge August 27th

    I would use cotton sateen in navy blue for the jacket and pant. A for the top a print charmeuse for the top. (12-20)

  49. LoreeK August 27th

    I would use a small print challis for the skirt or pants, with matching top. Size 12-20 for me.

  50. User avater jbsews August 26th

    Oh! Those pants in linen :-) 12-20 please and thank you!

  58. User avater putittogether August 26th

  84. Lady_D August 26th

    I would not make views A or B. I would make C, D, and E in cotton or linen, or perhaps a blend of both. Since I am - shall we say - less than fond of stand-alone hook-and-eye closures, I would modify the front of View E to have a decent button-down or snap closure, as well as changing the style of the collar and lengthening the sleeves ... I would also modify the length of the skirt (View C)to something much longer than given, because I am also not fond of knee-length skirts. Something in the size 12-20 range would fit me about perfectly.

  85. KK254 August 26th

    My vision for this pattrn is black lace lined with black silk for the top and pants. For the jacket, black satin with black lace sleeves unlined. I should have it finished by New Years Eve. Size 4-12.

    size 12-20 please.

  88. user-3186175 August 26th

    It would depend on the occasion it is made. I would make it in poplin if it is for a day to day outfit. But for a special or formal occasion, I would choose silk linen or shantung. Size 18-20.

  89. 60sGidget August 26th

    Some of the items cotton...some cotton knit...always bright colors...size 4-12...then I can sew for my teenage Granddaughters, too...

  90. maryellen48 August 26th

  91. User avater groomergal August 26th

    I have a nice blue linen to use and would need the 4-12.

    This reminds me of my favorite suite. The top would be made from dupioni silk and the jacket and pants would be a light weight suiting material.

  94. MrsLambertz August 26th

    I'd like to use a tartan suiting for the pants, skirt, and jacket, then use a light cotton jersey for the corset style top. Pair this outfit with some dark coloured tights, and some chunky boots and viola! fabulous fall is here. Size 4-12, please.

  95. scottydbky August 25th

    12-20 The fabric would have to come from Moms, 30 plus years stash.
