I was making this suit while the suit contest was running. It couldn’t compete because I drafted all the patterns myself. I bought this fabric and decided it would be fun to do an elaborate classic suit. I was going for kind of a vintage look without picking one style exactly. It consists of a tailored jacket, wide drapey trousers with belt pleats at the front, a simple waistcoat and a fit-and-flare skirt. All pieces are lined.
wool/polyesther (black and white herringbone) tweed, burgundy satin-y lining, black stretch lining (for skirt and trousers), fusible interfacing for wools, zippers, trouser hooks, grommets and ribbon
