Matryoshka Suit (Skirt - New Look 6594)

 Here is a skirt I made to complement my summer jacket. Instead of  pre-planned pencil skirt with godet I decided for a New Look 6594 pattern, wide plait skirt. View E made from border fabric.

I always avoided full skirts because was afraid of looking bigger and now I think that I missed so much *lol*. I love this pattern and would definitely use it again. I would love to make all other views as well.
When I started with this suit I was aiming on something casual but the final result looks umm.... I would call it rather  ornamental. When wearing it I feel like traditional Russian toy Matryoshka *lol*. After so many years of wearing businesslike suits it feels really nice :-)

 Some more views of the skirt and the suit. At the end of the day I don't have to wear it as a suit but can use them as separates.

Till next time :-)


  1. Oh my God!! How beautiful! I love, love this suit. It's easy to use along with the items separately. A real winner!

  2. Hallo Maria,
    das sieht fantastisch aus! Der Bordürenstoff ist sehr gekonnt eingesetzt und sieht auch an Dir zum Glück nicht nach "Matroschka" aus ;-).
    Ich finde es auch als Anzug getragen, sehr chic!

    P.S. Vielen Dank für Deinen lieben Kommentar. Der Shirt-Schnitt ist aus der aktuellen Frühlingsausgabe (Nr.38) der "Diana-Moden".

    Liebe Grüsse von Sabine
