Pink Suit

Feb 15, 2009

This pattern is a Sandra Betzina Todays Fit #8043.  I made it in a wool/cashmere blend that I purchased at Paron’s Fabrics in New York.  The fit of the jacket is exquisite and I hope to sew more versions in perhaps a boucle.

    I want this jacket!

    VERY nice. I like this one a lot. I wear suits every day at work and I'm liking this a lot. The bound button holes and the trim make it extra special.

    Great looking suit. Love the contrast and the bound buttonholes.

    I lined both the jacket and skirt in matching pink charmeuse. The collar binding was a technique I found in the book "Couture" by Roberta Carr. It is called "magic binding" because it really isn't bound...check it out!

    A beautiful eyecatching suit, and I think you are right it would be lovely in a boucle as well. I am curious about your lining? Did you find a pink to match?

    Thanks for the compliments. I did do bound buttonholes. They are easy to achieve and line up perfectly if you follow Sandra Betzina's method in her DVD, "Foolproof Buttonholes". She told a group of us that she learned it from a woman who does them for a small apparel firm. They were perfect and Sandra wanted to know how she did it. I used the technique for the breast pocket, too.

    Very pretty! Looks like you did bound buttonholes too! I'd love to see them close-up and I like the black contrast.

    Beautiful! Can't wait to see it at the next ASG style show! (Wink,wink,nudge,nudge!)

    Keep that sewin' goin',
