The Black and White of B5427

On Tuesday evening I finished the second suit made from Butterick 5427. It's not much different than the black suit finished last week. I put trim down the center front and sewed the buttonholes over that. Here are a few photos. Hopefully, I'll get pictures of my client wearing it.

This time I came closer to the "V" shaped neckline.

Both suits are fabulous. Min. Ross looks so nice in her black suit. She is truly fortunate to have a great seamstress like yourself to make her look even better. She is a lovely lady and a great fitting outfit makes her look that much better.

Thanks, everyone, for your kind words. Nancy K - The trim on the black jacket was hand sewn. On the white jacket, I was able to sew it on before joining with the other pieces of the jacket.

Thanks again,
Cennetta
