Neutral Ground

I love linen!  When Dorcas, Brand Ambassador for Sew Much Fabric, decided to make a linen suit I was so excited!  She selected a fabulous Burda Style jacket from a recent issue and highlighted the design details with an animal print binding.  The printed knit top pulls everything together!  Thanks Dorcas!

Nothing says summer like a linen suit and I've put together two great Burda patterns along with khaki linen from Roz at Sew Much Fabric to make an outfit that I think will be a real workhorse in my wardrobe. The jacket is Burda Style 04/2018 #102 and the minute I saw it in the magazine I knew I had to make it. It was a challenge but nothing difficult so I thoroughly enjoyed making it. Really, the only time consuming part was tracing the 17 pieces!


This jacket has so many cute design details. The front, of course, but I also love the curved cuff on the sleeves:


and also the safari jacket styling in the back:


The pants are Burda 7062 which I've made many, many times and always come back to for a great fitting pant. And I was crushing on the rayon knit Roz has in stock called Random Dot (Sold Out) so I used it to complete my outfit pairing it with New Look 6470, a TNT in my stash:


I'm completely smitten with my linen suit and can't wait to wear it. Linen is so comfortable to wear in Houston's heat and humidity and it launders beautifully, too. Run on over to Sew Much Fabric and I'll bet Roz has linen in one of your favorite colors!
