Vogue 2950 Oscar de la Renta

Here is Oscar de la Renta's lovely jacket, skirt and belt.  The jacket is unlined with covered shoulder pads, front-fly button closure and two-piece lined sleeves.  Belt with self bow and mid-knee, raised waistline vented skirt.  I used a lightweight silk\linen tweed in a soft plaid because it works for both winter and summer here in Southern California.  This pattern was a joy to work with, the pieces went together easily and the directions were well written with enough couture touches to create a beautiful suit that doesn't take too much time to complete.  I love the cut of the jacket, it has just enough shape to flatter while keeping a "Chanel-like" look when not belted.  I think this suit has a nice, elegant and sophisticated look.

A statement without accessories

You can't see the vent at the back of the skirt, but it lays nicely.
