I long anticipated the arrival of the Boater Silkstone and when she arrived two days ago I was not disappointed. In fact, it was love at first sight and she was out of that snazzy little suit and put to work as a model immediately. As soon as I saw her I knew that I wanted to make this suit for her.
The suit is actually a sheath dress with a fitted jacket. The fabric is a lovely light wool in a vivid lilac shade. The top of the sheath is a Liberty of London print (yet another treasure from Paris) and gives the affect of a contrasting shell top under the suit jacket. Both the sheath and jacket are fully lined in white silk. Tiny pearl buttons decorate the front of the jacket.
A contrasting bow belt in the Liberty print accents the waist of the jacket. It can also be used at the waist of the sheath, when the weather gets warmer and jackets are optional.
I hope that you enjoy this special suit!
