I only own one suit. I have had it for a very long time. It is black of course and I haven't worn it in about 10 years. It was basically my funeral suit sad to say. I have retired it to the back of the closet but not ready to be rid of it as of yet.
So I need to add some color to my life. What fall wardrobe doesn't have a cute suit? Yes, mine and I wanted to rectify that and bring some more color to my life. I am a Ponte Roma crack addict and I bought 5 yards of this luscious Ponte Roma Knit from Fine Fabrics in Atlanta last February. I loved how smooth it was, my crappy camera does not do the color justice. It is actually a really off apple green color, but again, me and my crappy Iphone camera.
I used New Look 6481 for the Jacket. After seeing Sew Craft Chemists version of the Jacket and how cute it looked on her, I decided to use this pattern for the jacket. I liked that it was no fuss and I didn't have to button. The design aesthetic was perfect and exactly what I was looking for. For the pants I used New Look 6080 which is a TNT for me. If I need a quick pair of zip side pants I opt for this pattern as I know exactly how it is going to fit. It sits on my hips exactly where I need it too and the crotch is perfect. I also love how the pant leg just falls.
