    This is really beautiful, amazing fit and those pleats and seams on the back are fantastic. And that’s just the skirt, the jacket is awesome. Really impressive!

    Well done on sewing your suit so beautifully. I think you should be so proud of this suit and you look great in it too.

    So beautifully made! Un-tailored? That is stretching it a bit! That looks like a hard job however, the result is perfect!
