The blouse is made from a sheer grey leopard print fabric. I am wearing my silk cami underneath for these photos, but I will make a grey vest to wear with this because I don't like how the white is showing through.
The only changes I made to the blouse pattern was to reduce the size of the two ties on the neckband. The pattern piece is cut on the bias and extremely long, and not really needed at the original length. I put two small pleats in the pattern piece to reduce both the width and the length and I don't feel it compromised the style of the blouse at all. I didn't cut the bias strip for the armscye facings but chose instead some grey satin bias tape that I keep in my stash.
I fully lined the skirt in the same lining that I used for my Chanel style jacket, I also used the lining for the inside of the waistband too.
I was really lucky putting this ensemble together because I had a grey moc-crock belt in my closet and some grey leather shoes with mock-crock on the toe and the heel and I think the grey works really well with my jacket. Excuse the unpressed look of the jacket (its been sitting in my closet since I came back from the wedding). Of course I had to include a picture with my new bag to complete the look.
