I found high quatity wool for sale from a men taillor studio,very cheap, very good!
I made a jacket and trousers from a Vogue pattern V1064
both are fully lined
the pattern did not fit too well, so I had a lot to do.
I am not absolutely content with the result, because the jacket it too short , I should have given more length ,
(the pattern are all for 168cm and I am 173cm)
but now ended up with 3 instead of 5 buttons.
The trousers fitted quite well,I only took off a little width on the legs

Material Notes

english wool




Spring, Fall, Winter

    You have posted a lot of nice projects but this jacket catched my eyes at once! May be it is because of the high quality wool, such an investement pays everytime. I really think that the lenght of the jacket is o.k. – just like Adriana. Concerning your adjustements: Take heart, I also always have to do lots of changes to fit my patterns…. and in my opinion it is a miracle that the trousers fitted so well without any changes!!!

      thank´s for your posting,I matched the pattern of the trousers with my own drawn pattern, and changed very little, so this was easy, but with my sloping sholders and skipping to lenghten the body I had trouble .You woudn`t see it but feel … The way to a tailoring expert is a longe one! I`ll try again with another fabric ,the pattern is really nice.

    Danke für das Kompliment! Ich habe den Schnitt im Leib nicht verlängert, so ist er etwas zu kurz geraten,außerdem habe ich so abfallende Schultern, da wird es noch kürzer. Die3 Abnäher hätte ich noch kürzen müssen.Das sieht man nicht, aber spürt man. Ich werde das Model aus einem hellblauen Wolstoff nocheinmal machen ,das Nähen ist nicht das Problem,die Masschneidererfahrung baut sich langsam auf,leider
