Bolero Suit

Here’s another sewing project that doesn’t go with my SWAP, but at least this one is in the same color scheme and should go with pieces from my SWAP.  My original plan was to make the whole suit from DuBarry 5231, but I could not get the shaped hem on the jacket to fit properly with a FBA.  The jacket is from Marian Martin 9197.  The skirt and jacket were both easy pieces to make and I can see another suit in my future.
