Right now I have decided to finally undertake the making of this suit:
After reading many reviews I feel I am somewhat prepared for this new challenge. Cutting out the pieces seems to always take so long, but I almost all the many pieces ready to go. Sometimes I wish I could just pay someone to cut everything out for me, ;).
Now, I’ve decided to begin with the easier half of the two: the skirt. Overall very simple, the only time consuming portion will be the pick stitching, but I find that I like to do a bit of hand sewing so at least not difficult, :). Very excited to be working on my new suit!
Will post updates and photos as I go along. I’m making it with this beautiful striped dark gray suiting fabric and pink dupioni silk accents for the piping and pick stitching.
