Just an update on how Vickie's suit is progressing. For the most part, the skirt is complete. I just need to close the lining's back seam, and hem both the skirt and lining. I love the details on the skirt, which are all in its construction. None of this will be visible when Vickie wears the outfit for her daughter's wedding, so I thought I'd share some of them now. I LOVE when a garment is as beautiful on the inside as outside.
|Skirt front view - still needs pressing and hemming.|
|Inserted an invisible zipper in the skirt's center back.|
|View of the skirt facing...|
|...which is free from the skirt lining. I love how this facing looks.|

|Back view of the facing and zipper. The lining still needs to be attached, but|
I'm waiting for a final fitting before I close it.
|And, of course, my sewing companion doing what he does best!!|
