Vogue DKNY 2951 suit et al

Jacket: Vogue DKNY # 2951
Plain skirt: Butterick 3637 OOP
Knit Top:Simplicity 4076 View E


Jacket:Tobacco Solbiati Linen
Print skirt: Ungaro Cotton Sateen with lycra
Knit Top: Spun Viscose Knit( san lycra)

Semi fitted lined jacket with patch pockets, princess seams in back, topstitched design trim and buttoned front.
Main distinguishing details are the sleeves.
Three piece combination sleeve , that is set in front and raglan back.
Not unusual ,I have made severaljackets with como sleeves from Donna Karan , recently Bill Blass.There is a brown longer length coat in January 2007 Burda WOF.
The combo can raglan front or back.
Note***** The sleeves are only 7/8th ,just about obvious on the pattern envelope but not mentioned/ no measurements

Tulip style skirt.Omitted the pockets. didnt have enough for fabric and I wouldnt wear with extrahip widening features.The yoke lining was done in the plain linen and edges finished with bias strips on Ambiance lining

Smart move to make a plain( non faddy) skirt.
Plain A-line fully lined skirt.OOP Butterick 3637
Finally a quick knit top.
Simplicity 4076 View E in spun viscose knit.Not very stretchy so needed to size up.
Me , I prefer Butterick 3391 OOP View E , with a slightly pulled effect over the gathered area and better suited for suits
