The Only Tan I Will Get This Summer
A capsule designed to expand my wardrobe.
I won't wear them together as much as with other pieces, I think.
Pants, jacket, top, bag- close upPants, jacket, top, bag
Skirt, top, bagSkirt, jacket, top, bag
The top doesn't look as green as this in real life. It is actually a good match to the pants and perfect with the skirt. I might end up hemming the skirt a bit shorter and taking it in a bit soon. In fact, everything has been made to be taken in easily. I have put on about 15 pounds (which I had lost earlier in the year-eeks) and hope to lose it. I have been so busy with work that I let myself go in diet and exercise to save time. Ordering in is expensive and probably not healthy. Just home cooking should help with the weight loss. I should get a better picture of the side seams on the skirt- the pattern is matched up brilliantly, IMVHO of course!
The pants are elasticated at the waist. I also took four darts in the back and two in the front. I had planned to add a fly, but the fabric was so stretchy I decided against. I wore them yesterday and they have stretched out a bit already, so they will need to come in sooner rather than later.

I love your capsule. The jacket is great, style and topstitching are both so well done. And the bag is just right to coordinate with everything, plus a pop of color. Excellent job. Congratulations!
