I don't know for how long I've been lokking for fabric like this. it's 100% cotton and in a twill weave. White and blue. 10 yards of it. Is it enough?
Not sure how far apart the stripes are in real life but it looks good in the picture.

I mean.. you see it and you know it, but will the picture in your head match up when you're actually holding the fabric in your hands? 

This is a beatiful and classy suit and it needs a tight fit to look good. I'm really tempted this time.  I can feel the motivation for going back to 1912 comming along.... just have to find a new home first ;)

Finished blouse.....

I am not very sure about the timeframe of this pattern but the seller claimed it to be early 1940's. So I'll stick to that as well.

This type of button holes were new to me in another 30's project and I like the way they are made and how they look.

I can't believe how hard it was to find big red buttons here in Drammen/Norway. I had to order from China! Can you believe it? They are a tiny bit on the bluish side as well but that will have to do. It looks good anyway.

The back

Right side....

..and left side.

Here I used some left over fabric to indicate a skirt. Not bad. 
Something like these sailor pants will be my next sewing project ......
