I wanted to make myself something from wool but couldn't bring myself to pay for it when I knew there was a good possibility I wouldn't wear this outfit much after the party. Instead I found this cotton during one of the last weekends Nancy's Sewing Basket was still open in Queen Anne. The store was closing, and Mikey and I headed over to add to my stash from the store-closing deals. The cotton worked rather well for the jacket, which I suspect will get more wear over the years. (I'll probably end up dying the skirt.) But the waist tended to collapse a bit after wearing the skirt for a few hours. Lining is Bemberg rayon.
Just like with the first jacket version, I topstitched all seams, so I carried this over to the skirt. Buttons are from Esther's.
