As much as I liked the green version of this skirt & jacket, I think I might like the red even better. I honestly thought I'd prefer the green outfits and the red ones were something of an afterthought but this has not been the case! I almost always seem to prefer the red one after both are completed.
Part of what I love about this outfit is the jacket. I found a perfect texture online. I'm not sure exactly what the texture would be called, but it's something of a coarse weave I've seen in women's jackets. I'm much more interested in the image of a thing than its name. My husband & I are able to tag-team social functions that way: I have a wonderful memory for faces, but not for names while he remembers everyone's names flawlessly. I'm not overly concerned with the correct names for fabrics or fashion history. I suppose I should be -- and I am when it's important -- but this is a fun project, not a serious one!
A new outfit tomorrow, pdf to come.
