But somehow, I didn't get around to making one. I did sew the skirt for K in 2009. Part of my problem was that I couldn't decide what fabric to use. I thought about making a red cord one but worried about it being too Christmas-y for the rest of the year. I considered a solid brown...meh. I wanted to make a gray jacket after seeing this one but really needed to use up some of the fabric from my stash.
After M started requesting clothes that were aqua, I remembered a brown with aqua polka dots cord that I had. Even though she had initially rejected the Sunday Brunch pattern, I took a chance that she'd like the finished outfit.
She really likes the pockets in the skirt.
Initially, she wasn't too keen on buttoning the jacket. I think she wanted to make sure that her tunic was showing.
I'm pleased with this pattern. The instructions were wonderful as is typical of the Oliver + S patterns. The binding on the jacket seams and the facing was a little time consuming, but well worth the effort. I ended up using the fabric that I used for the top of the tunic for the jacket's facings and binding. The skirt is sweet and a quick sew. I love the little kick pleat in the back and the pockets are great to have.
Right now MG is rockin' her new outfit with her daddy's Green Bay Packers hat. Go Packers!!
