Easter is in six weeks. When I was younger, most of the women at my church wore spring suits that color coordinated with their daughter’s dresses on Easter morning (with an appropriate hat, too, of course).
Let’s be honest. I have too much on my plate right now to even think I’m going to get a new suit made before Easter. But I can dream can’t I?
This image has been in my “design ideas” folder in my computer for a very long time. I know it has been in there for many years because it doesn’t have any tags to indicate where I found it, if I happen to own this pattern, or even the pattern number! Ah well, we learn as we go along, eh?
I love the asymmetrical opening of this jacket and the little tab that peaks out over the top to give it a little “look at me!” interest. Look for a peplum jacket without a collar pattern and redraw the front of it to an angle that would be appropriate for your shape. I think it would look terrific in a wool crepe.
Will you be making an Easter suit this year?
