Inspired by Jackie Kennedy...

This is the very first complete outfit I have sewn in my new sewing space - Thank you my sweet Hubby! The jacket and skirt are from NewLook 6290 and the pillbox hat instructions came from  The material is some kind of rayon or polyester blend and has very small gold threads running through it... I thought it was the perfect color and feel for a 60's outfit. Here is the picture that inspired me... it is actually Katie Holmes playing the part of Jackie Kennedy and I just love the look!


  1. Thank you! All I need to be able to wear this is the right blouse and the right shoes... :)
