2003 Convention Pattern
A long below the hip length jacket with princess seams for a perfect fit, a rolled shawl collar, and a lovely sleeve applique, is teamed with a short skirt to become a trend setting modern suit. Change the skirt to a semi-pleated floor length with ribbon or braid trim and add an oversize soft ruffle brim hat for a 1903 boardwalk suit.
Designers Note: In honor of the 2003 MADC Convention taking place in Savannah Georgia this year, I wanted to design a special pattern for Cissy. For inspiration I researched Georgia itself. Steeped in mystery and romance, ever-changing modern combines with rich history to create enchantment. With all this in mind, the design was born to encompass both modern and historical. A modern social suit can be changed and enhanced to become a turn of the century boardwalk suit or make both skirts to go with the same jacket for two completely different era's.
