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.Β 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.


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.
