DIY Spring Suit

I love nothing more than suit dressing, it’s easy and you don’t have to concern yourself with styling your top with your bottom.  So when this Italian double faced cotton twill arrived from Mood, I new some sort of set/suit had to be made.  I love a greatly designed peplum top so I used the front and back piece to the Vogue 8815 pattern and made the folowing alterations:

Created a faced V neck
Added large breast pleats
Added large box pleats to the peplum
Placed a side zipper
Created a front seam
Eliminated the back seam

I love this top so much I will be creating a pattern to share.

My first preference is a skirt but when it comes to shorts, I like a looser fit with a wider leg which finding a proper fit is a challenge.  I love the structure of these shorts made with Vogue 8836, they are supremely comfortable and very easy to wear.  I made the following alterations to the pattern:

Cut the pant pattern into shorts
Created 1 box pleat on each side
