December garments of the month - finsihed!

The final stitches have been completed and I now have a tweed suit that will need to find some serious outgoings to go to!!

Looks like DH should have mowed the lawn!
The benefit of both of these pieces is that they will work extremely well individually with plain tops, bottoms or jackets so I have a lot of ideas running around my head at the moment.

The skirt is my Self Drafted TNT skirt pattern, with the fabric being completely fused with Superfine interfacing to help stop it from bagging from sitting as well as lining the skirt in my normal fashion with Sun Silky lining.


Unfortunately this skirt can't be included in my SWAP plans, but that is okay as I have the perfect brown summer weight wool ready to be made into a skirt and the remainder of the silk crepe de chine that I used to quilt my jacket with for a top.

I would like to thank all of you for reading my posts this year and enjoying my journey with me and your wonderful comments that you have taken the time to share.  I look forward to seeing your sewing adventures in 2014 and wish everyone a wonderful New Year and a sewfantastic 2014.

Fantastic outfit Sharon. I hope you get many opportunities to wear this suit in the New Year, to justify all the work that you must have put into it. You have impeccable sewing skills. Looking forward to following your sewing journey in 2014.

Vicki said...

Beautifully done! Looks wonderful on you.

BeaJay said...

That outfit looks fantastic on you. I love the whole look. Very classy and classic.

Have a great New Year and I look forward to sewing with you in 2014

Beautifully constructed outfit, Sharon ~ well done! It looks smashing on you ... J

Sarah Liz said...

The suit is stunning Sharon. Isn't it a pity that life is so casual nowadays that it is not easy to wear such gorgeous garments. The jacket though would also work with more casual trousers, and the skirt with a nice jumper. The craftsmanshiip is once again superb. Happy New Year Sharon.

Jenni said...

Fabulous work as always. The outfit is very flattering on you and even more wearable for being able to be split and worn as separates. The jacket would look fab with jeans too I think.

Dilliander said...

Stunning! Sharon you look a million dollars. How lovely to have such a gorgeous outfit in your wardrobe. It is beautiful in every way... and such a fabulous high to note on which to farewell 2013. Happy new year and I look forward to more sewing adventures in 2014.

Your suit looks amazing. I adore the jacket by itself, but as an ensemble,this is beautifully smart and polished.

SewRuthie said...

Fantastic suit.

Karen Pior said...

How wonderful you look. The fitting of both pieces is just perfect. So very elegant. And I know the workmanship would be so good. It eas great to re-connect with you this year after a 15 year or so hiatus. Bring on 2014!! Cheers, Karen

LOVE!!!! I hope you wear it, together and separately, to death.

A to-die-for ensemble like that deserves it. ;-)

Fabulous!
The fit is great, the back looks so smooth and the waist is so slimming. I love the trim that you picked, very chic and classy.

Alison said...

Lovely, lovely outfit. Well done! ~Teri

Gorgeous Things said...

Beautiful!!! You can wear the jacket anywhere - with a different skirt, trousers or (my favorite combo) jeans! And the suit will be a great option for dinner out.

Fabulous!!!!

EmSewCrazy said...

That suit is stunning! I hope one day I can make pieces that look that great!

Debbie Cook said...

I don't know how I missed this but I'm glad you linked to it from your most recent post. Your suit is absolutely gorgeous! And I love the coloration (I love me the earth tones)!

Happy New Year!
