I made this suit for my boyfriend as my project for a tailoring class. I used Burda pattern 8186, and I was so pleased with the results! I learned so much making this, and it gave me a new appreciation for all that goes into making a men’s suit jacket. I found a gorgeous Pendleton wool that had a lot of green and gray tones, and used a gold-ish lining that complemented the wool nicely.
Wool, rayon lining, interfacing.
Trousers, blazers, and blouses in cool neutrals have model-off-duty style.
