The skirt and blouse were made using Simplicity 3688 in wool blend houndstooth suiting and dark magenta silkessence (poly faux silk). I should've made a slightly larger size in the blouse, or actually bother to alter it to fit. It's a little tight in the bust and shoulder/back. However, an overall larger size will be too loose in the midriff.
The vest was based on this pattern sketch I found after scouring the internet for 40s style vests. Again, probably should've done a mock-up first instead of just winging it, because it turned out rather tight in the bust. Even with strategic button placement, it requires a pin to prevent gapping between top and second button at bust. Well, live and learn. And maybe not be so lazy... (a tendency I have when making clothing for myself)
