That is exactly what happened to this suit. While it is not particularly heavy fabric, a lined, belted, long sleeve jacket just didn't do it for me once June arrived here. This jacket sat on one of my dress forms for months. In July the thermometer was hovering around 100º F and I finally folded it up and put all the pieces away in a bin. Last week I saw a few falling leaves - so it was time to revisit this suit and get it DONE. Here is a look at the 2 pieces, jacket is put together and just needs it lining and lapel facing.
I have to say this project confounded me in so many ways but I see some light at the end of the tunnel and have plenty to post about when it is all finished. I would never have chosen this for myself but last January I made the bold (idiotic) offer to make a Vogue designer pattern chosen by a reader of this blog. Ruta chose this Vogue 1143 Guy Laroche pattern and while I am very glad she did it was a challenge. Lots of weird quirks with this pattern plus the frightening idea of pants.
Just about finished and I hope to have finished outfit photos in the next few weeks. I need some kind of top to wear with this so I will have to ponder that once the jacket is completed.
Unrelated to the post above, I saw this plant growing next to a wall when taking an early morning walk on vacation in Hawaii. Wonder what it is. Even the random roadside plants are lovely there.
