HI DARLINGS! I couldn’t wait to post my purple suit, lol. When I tell you I am a bit obsessed with my SIMPLICITY 8749 PATTERN.ย I have already made it in a grey suiting and obviously, in the wool plaid you see on the pattern envelope but I want a few color suits like this purple linen one. I plan on making a yellow one really soon and maybe one more plaid one, lol.

This suit is not only great fitting and flattering but it can be rocked so many ways so I made a STYLE VIDEO that I am posting on Monday showing you 6 ways to get the most out of these two pieces. I can’t wait to post it!

You can see the previous GREY SUIT POST HERE and you guys know I have SEW-ALONG videos for all my patterns which you can find on my YOUTUBE CHANNEL.

Details on my fabric and modifications below.


PATTERN INFO AND MODIFICATIONS

The pattern is my SIMPLICITY 8749

I know I designed it and because of that, I think it’s awesome BUT all that aside it is a great pattern, not overly complicated for a suit, has a great fit and so many possibilities. I love the linen which I bought at MICAHEL LEVINE some time ago and the silk stripe fabric I got at the FABRIC STORE before they closed the LaBrea shop.

I shortened the jacket by two inches this time and used the OGDEN CAMI PATTERN for my top. I love that pattern and have used a million times already.
