Versatile career wardrobe... only $6,095.00
Even if you had $6,000 to spend on 6 pieces, you may not find coordinating colors, how crazy is that?
Aren't you glad you sew?
These are some options for pattern equivalents.
The jacket may not have the signature McQueen rounded shoulders, but it's a good option for a jacket pattern. For the peplum tops Vogue 8815, comes with a long sleeve variation and the pattern is meant for wovens but could be altered for knits (the black version above is a jersey, and the white is a woven cotton). The Claire Shaeffer pant is a ringer for the tailored pant above (although there are plenty of basic pant patterns that fit the bill), and the pencil skirt is probably already in your pattern stash somewhere. The dress which is a fine knit is probably in Burda somewhere but I don't get the magazine, so if anyone has seen it, let me know.
