Skirt and jacket project

Here is my next skirt project-Simplicity 4091. I purchased a chocolate brown fabric from Hancocks several months ago. I had in mind to make a gored flared skirt and flatlock the seams in a contrasting thread color. The color I had in mind was teal. I had seen a clerk wearing this skirt and liked the look. I never found a skirt pattern that appealed to me so this design has stayed dormant. I have some lovely teal and brown paisley tapestry type fabric I also purchased from Hancocks about a year ago that will go with this brown fabric very well.

Here is the look of the skirt with the brown fabric. I am making View F.
I had thought about this jacket-Simplicity 4328. But I am thinking it may be to boxy for this skirt. Here it is with the fabric I plan to use. I am was thinking View E.

What do you think? Should I try a more fitted jacket with this skirt or go with the current jacket posted above? Feedback appreciated.


  1. I like the idea of a more fitted jacket with this skirt. I think that you're right about it's boxyness when it's paired with the skirt (now with a pair of pants - wonderful!).

    I love Alma Marie, btw!

  2. Nice skirt! I agree with Stacy that you need a more fitted jacket. The outfit will be a knockout!
