Description

My grandmother bought this Pendleton wool suiting in the 1960s whilst visiting the mill, and she gave it to me last summer. I’ve used it to create a tuxedo-inspired jacket, with the matching trousers soon to follow! Read and see loads more about it at: http://www.fehrtrade.com/gallery/83/forty-year-wool-jacket

Material Notes

100% wool Pendleton suiting fabric plus some crepe-backed satin for the front facing, collar, and lining

    It looks really good. It must have been a pain to sew those collars…

    I like the fabricmix and you choose the best colors for blue: white and grey. You look fantastic in it!
