Linen Summer Outfit! 🌞

I'm in love with Green for the moment πŸ’š

I bought this nice linen fabric online from Lituania.
It has very tiny stripes, but that makes it even more interesting.
I had exactly enough to make both a jacket and a skirt.
I have made the jacket with Tulips of the same pattern before.
I found the skirt pattern in an old magazine.
The skirt has a little split at the one side.

All the pieces are cut out, and I was so happy that I manage to cut out a skirt as well :)

I started with sewing the inserts for the skirt,
and then the zipper at the back panels.

To stitch very narrow the zipper from the hem and up I have to change the sewing-foot.

The invisible zipper are stitched in place.

The skirt is finished, but I have to make the lining.

 I had to leave an opening for the split at the side.

BurdaStyle pattern from 07/97 

I have stitched the pleats for the front panels, 

- amd for the back panel.
Side seams are stitched, and the sleeves have to be stitched.

I have used fish-pads for the shoulders, but shoulder-pads as well
since the fabric was a bit thin.

I chose to use yellow lining.

The lining matched my Chiffon Blouse that are an earlier project.

I have used a snap-button for the jacket, and a nice button on top as decoration :)
