Sparkle tweed Campbell Blazer and Martie Pants

Blazer: fits TTS, which means a 00 for me. I am busty for my overall build, but the blazer feels good even buttoned. That means there's room at the just and that its buttoning ok at the waist, given the single-button style.

Pros: interesting fabric; good construction; good fit.

Cons: loose threads under the collar; boring light grey flannel lining under the collar (no popping this one). 

Overall, I quite love it. Here is a closeup of the fabric and a few pictures. 

So you see the sparkle comes from the tiniest flat sequins threaded on to the tweed: I like the tweed: it is soft and high quality because it is warm.

Under collar.

Inside pocket, lining and finish.

Martie pant:
Fits one size too small. I sized up to a P2, while I usually wear a 00R. The petite length is good, and the leg is cut slim, so I love the look overall. Pleats at the front, over the tummy, but they are subtle.

Pros: warm, great silhouette; well fitted, if you find the right size. Hidden side zipper. Fully lined.

Cons: none, really.

Overall, the pants are really cute and sophisticated.

 Notched ankle opening, which I like

Hidden zipper 

I love the whole thing, folks. So help me, .....
