Taking You from Day to Night

Back in the spring, Linda called wanting to update her wardrobe. We spent a Saturday afternoon going through her closet deciding what to keep and what to eliminate. Linda is a corporate event planner for an international oil and gas company as well as running her own event planning business Essential Elements and More (832-483-1987). Linda needs clothes that take her from the corporate office during the day to her own events at night. We decided to make Linda a jacket, halter and skirt. The jacket and halter are made from a
mid- weight cotton jacquard from her stash

and the skirt is denim from Ralph Lauren featured in last summer's mailout.

We drafted a jacket and halter pattern

and used Vogue 7937 view C for the skirt.

The halter has a seperating zipper on the side.

It also features boning in the front, side and back to keep the halter from sagging.

Wearing all three pieces gives Linda a professional look but by removing her jacket she stays cool while showcasing her many events for summer.
