Pattern from Burda magazine, made in navy polyester crepe.
I like half this garment (the top half) and am not sure about the other half. The shirt bit (done up with poppers) looks great - the collar is sharp, the sleeve length and cuffs very Rosie the Riveter.
But the trouser section...it doesn’t look AWFUL but I’m not that pleased with it. I don’t do much with elastic waists, but I liked the idea of not having to do a zip or other fastening. I just don’t think the final effect is as smart as the top half, probably should have just continued the poppers. Also the trouser fit is a little off and I haven’t quite put my finger on what it is yet. It’s not too tight, but I’m wondering if the waist to low hip section is too short?
Judgement reserved until I have worn it a few times, I think.
