Vogue 8398 and Ottobre skirt

Here is a nice "arty" photo of me in the skirt and jacket taken by Sofie. I have a RTW cami underneath. I had photos with the top in and out. Out looks better but you can see the skirt better in.


The jacket fabric is quite stiff and does not want to play nice. The shoulders could be better. But its "good enough" especially for a casual jacket.
I don't have time to blog about the skirt today other than to say it is from Ottobre 5/2007 but modified to make it fuller. I am off now to our PatternReview get together dinner but I will be changing first - it is a bit chilly tonight. Tomorrow is supposed to be hot so I may swap the shoes for flats and wear the outfit on our shopping trip.
Enjoy the weekend everyone!

And here I was thinking "wow, she got it to fit perfectly!" right before you said there were still something you didn't like about it - could be the pics, but I think you got too close to it. I'm sticking with "perfection" :D.

Your outfit is really nice. I like that you wouldn't let the pattern beat you but you beat it. Will you make it again in another more forgiving fabric?

Perfect outfit! The fabrics look great together, and I think the jacket fits great. It doesn't look stiff in the photos.

Love the outfit. Great fabric for the skirt.

Very nice! Somehow, that isn't what I expected when you said you were making a skirt to match the jacket. It's much prettier than the picture I had in mind! :)

Vicki, I have to agree, what a great time we had on the PR weekend. Having seen you wearing your outfit may I say you looked fabulous. The skirt fitted beautifully, and until I read your blog I didn't realise you were not happy with the jacket. It did look so good on you, the colour suits you and it fitted very well.
