The Lined Jacket Contest and Skirt

I completed the Vogue 8916 suit during the Government shutdown.  I used purple tweed fabric and lining from my stash and purchased trim from JoAnn Fabrics. 


Pattern Description:  Loose-fitting lined jacket has side front seams and pockets.  Lined skirt has waistband and invisible zipper.

 

I added back darts to make the jacket less boxy and a little more fitted...

 
 I also added trim...
