Peggy Carter/ Women's 1940 Army Suit

For the past while I've been working on Peggy Carters military suit from the first Captain America. I found some lovely olive wool suiting (that was made in England) on eBay. This isn't the best replica of women's military suits from the 1940s but its pretty close!

I made the jacket from Simplicity pattern 2446

I used a pencil skirt that I had, as a pattern for the skirt. Which was basically a square and I just add darts at the waist to give it shape. 

My hubby made an awesome Captain America suit to match! We both had a lot of fun working on these outfits.
