Choir Sundays '09 #7

This month's Choir Colors: Black and White
Jacket: McCall's 5529, from a double-faced checked rayon blend.

The top was a RTW bargain from a big Talbot's sale; a black silk jersey cap sleeve t for which I believe I paid 8 bucks. Unfortunately, it's a tad big so it only gets worn under things.

The pants are the often-seen Vogue 7881 black cotton twill. Looking at the photo, I really think this jacket would look better with skinnier pants, but, oh, well. I was comfy. ;)


  1. Lisa about the ribbon for the pattern weights, Yes the width of the ribbon made a difference. I ended up with several sizes due to trying to pick ones that were on sale; the 5/8" width work beautifully; the 7/8" width was o.k. and the 1 1/2 inch was such a pain that I ironed it in half down the middle to use it; but I made each size work.

  2. I love you in this outfit. Looks very sophisticated & really pretty. The Chico's style necklace & the belt are the perfect accessories.
