Hi Darlings, I hope you had a wonderful weekend. About two weeks ago I posted a “Fresh off the sewing machine” pic on my IG which I do often after finishing a new project. The pic was of this two piece on my dress form which I was dying to wear. I used a New Look pattern #0912 for the jacket which is unfortunately now out of print but I gave you options below to recreate it. You can also try eBay or your local Joann as patterns are often still in the drawers after they have gone out of print. The skirt is just a basic pencil skirt which I self drafted. You can draft your own easy high waist pencil skirt using THIS tutorial.

Jacket Pattern Option HERE + HERE / Fabric Options HERE + HERE and I used a plain Double Knit for the sleeves and bands.

I wore this look with my Adidas ( I am obsessed with them) I love the look of the two piece with the fashion sneakers look but still keeping it soft and dressy. These sneakers go with anything honestly but sometimes I just don’t feel like wearing heels to a meeting. The necklace is from Nordstrom Rack and I love it! The Sunglasses are from Chilli Beans (gifted) similar ones can be seen HERE and my lipstick is Covergirl Spellbound

If you happen to get you hands on this specific New Look 0912 pattern I will say that the instructions are very clear and this is a relatively easy pattern to put together. The collar and bands are done quickly and once you get the zipper done you can breeze by this one. I love this pattern, if you can hunt it down…do it.
