A three piece men’s suit using Burda patterns.
I made the vest using a simple vest pattern I created using an existing garment. The hat was made using a modified Gatsby Hat pattern I found online.

Material Notes

Due to the high cost of suiting I used cheaper loosely woven wool for the project. As a result I decided to go for notched lapels rather than peaked.

    Very nicely done! Good fabric choice too, you’re right that suiting is horribly expensive!

      I found some pin stripes for a mere 2100 yen (about 20 dollars) a meter. But I am a bit unsure about going for it with this pattern. I worry about getting the pinstripes right without wasting a lot of fabric in recuts.

    Cool, I am in the process of sewing my own suit also using the Burda pattern I recently purchase. I will definitely post here once I completed the suit. Great job!

      I am definitely all about mens fashion, since i only sew for myself. I have made this particular suit twice now with the second go around much better. Once I get my wife to take some pictures I will certainly add them.
