Susanc22 Susanc22 writes: 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.

J2B J2B writes: 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.

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!

MrsBrown MrsBrown writes: 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)

AltiB AltiB writes: 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.

sewnutt1 sewnutt1 writes: 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!

bournegirl bournegirl writes: 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)

lovetosewsorselo lovetosewsorselo writes: 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.

sandy830 sandy830 writes: 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.

GypsyThread GypsyThread writes: 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

Lady_D Lady_D writes: 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.
