Description

For Valentine’s Day, I designed a 60s-inspired suit for my husband. It’s not as formal as a tuxedo, but it’s a step up from a regular suit because it is trimmed in satin. I used a self-drafted pattern and a polyester-blend for the trousers and jacket.

    Hello! I love this suit, especially the collar! And these satin borders. Your husband looks really smart in it (maybe also without it, in fact). Congratulations!

    Great idea with the arm vents… do you call it that way? I mean, the how the buttons are attached on the sleeves…

    Great work… a bit more of Ironwork would make it even more perfect… :)

    So long Basti
