Vday Pink Suit

Soooooo... where do I begin on this suit ?! 

Ok how about at the beginning ..  I knew that Valentines Day was coming up and I needed something to wear  . Per usual, I wanted to be comfortable AND fly so I started looking for inspiration online... . After seeing more than enough reasons why .... I decided to make a pink suit !!

Lets talk patterns ...
I used Simplicity 5571 , a vintage pattern and Simplicity 8265! I picked the vintage pattern up a few months ago at a thrift store hall . The volume in the pants was perfect for the look I wanted . Simplicity 8265 had been in my statsh for sometime and I really was just waiting on the perfect fabric for this coat!

I used a Refinied  Ponte Knit from Joanns and it was a DREAM to work with!

I HAVE to go back and by more  of this type of fabric . The stability of the fabric was PERFECT for the look I wanted ! Joann's sells it in a few diffrent colors , its just a matter of finding them in the store . They normally sell out of colors pretty fast . 

 I love the look that both of these pieces helped create ! 

Purse : Steve Madden   Shoes : Target 

Pros and Cons ....

Jacket : Pros:  I LOVE everything about this jacket ! The only Con if any is that it isnt a lined jacket . BUT that gives you the flexibility of using lighter or heavier weight fabrics for this pattern . I plan on making a heavier lined version and a lighter "sweater" version later.

Pants :Cons ... IF I made these again I would definitly take out some of the ease in the crotch . It left a little more loose fabric in the front that I would have prefered . I would also add pockets .   Pros: I loved the volume in the pants and how quick easy it was to sew them 

 I hope that you all had a wonderful love filled heart day ! 

Until Next Time XOXO
