Nicely done! I especially like the plaid skirt/jacket combination. So lovely!!

That jacket IS beautifully tailored and finished. Such attention to detail! What a great find. You wore it well! I particularly liked your brown dress. Soooo pretty!! :) The style caught my eye and the fabric is just lovely...where did you get it?

Thank you so much for the compliments, ladies!

Sarah, the fabric for the gold/brown dress I got at bargain prices from a destashing Etsy seller - it's a Thimbleberry brand cotton but I'm not sure what the design name is.

Ah ha! Thimbleberry fabric is so pretty! And would you believe the original Thimbleberry studio was here in my current town? :) The owner/designer, Lynnette Jensen, has since retired and the quilt shop changed hands but they still carry her line of fabric and some books. I have looked many times at the lovely fabrics in the shop, but they are kind of tough on the wallet. Good for you for finding it at a bargain price! I should look more often for fabric on Etsy. :)


Your jacket looks like it was made for you ~ and that skirt! I love those colors together; I think that the whole ensemble is divine. ❤

Sarah - I do love Thimbleberry prints! I've only ever actually used this one, though. And I do a lot of buying fabric online, though it's somewhat of a risk and a surprise since you can't get a true color or fabric feel on the computer screen. :-)

Thank you, Bonita! I was pleased with it myself, especially for already having the perfect fabric in my stash to pair with a jacket that is 60 + years old! And that plaid fabric I had bought on Ebay and when I got it, thought, Oh, I don't know if I'll ever use this. It's a little loud for me. But stashed it anyway - I got something like 6 yards of it! - and then to find the perfect fit for some of it was lots of fun. I may make a matching jacket eventually so I can mix and match the separates.
