  1. I love this outfit! Great fabric choices. I’ve had my eye on this pattern for awhile because of the jacket, but haven’t bought it yet because I prefer the paper patterns. I may just have to buy it anyway and add it to my Fall sewing list.

  2. I adore the fabrics you’ve used. The Woollies flannels are such great quality so I’ll bet that jacket feels as good as it looks. Plus it’s my very favourite shade of blue.
    I barely recognised the skirt with so much length added! It has much more of a pencil skirt look about it. I’m guessing you prefer a more modest length? Anyway, she looks very grown up and smart! Beautiful work!
