Pleated Dress & Jacket Ensemble


I completed this beige taffeta dress and navy jacket a few months ago and I’ve worn them several times since. The weather never quite cooperated when it came to taking photos of it, but yesterday, on New Year’s Eve, it happened! A combination of snow, time off work, and my little dog Garcon (who is always up for som fun in the snow) has finally resulted in some pictures to post!


The dress is composed of a fitted bodice and pleated skirt. The shimmering silk taffeta silk was amazing to work with: light and crisp, and perfect for pleats. The bodice is lined with a simple cotton voile.

For the jacket, I usedย Butterick 9703ย for the pattern and some navy wool flannel blend which I had left over fromย this old project.

All in all, it was a pretty straightforward project, the result of which is a nice little ensemble that has become part of my seasonal wardrobe.



Happy New Year! Wishing you all a beautiful 2017, filled with love, good health, and lots of stitches!
