Description

I had been looking for a tuxedo pattern for some time, and finally sourced this one by designer Loes Hinse. I had wanted a fairly unstructured feel to the garment, whilst still maintaining a tailored look – as if you were wearing your husband’s jacket home after a night out!

This pattern proved to be just about right & I am making it again in another material. It works with both heavy & lightweight fabric but go easy on the heavy fabrics when creating this type of neck/ collar line as you need something that will roll smoothly.

Material Notes

Black cashmere – an eBay bargain from an end of roll supplied by a London warehouse. The lining is silk bought from a fabulous supplier called Croftmill, based in Lancashire.

The blue tux is made from a vintage coat which was too big for me, so I unpicked it and reused the fabric. The collar is navy crepe.
