My first attempt at tailoring, fully lined, hand finished and beaded.
The pattern was from the Burda Style Vintage – The Fantastic Fifties magazine with added matching cuffs. I enjoyed this project so much I have just started a second Suit!

    It’s awesome! I’d like to see you wearing it. I like vintage fashion, too, and have many Japanese vintage fashion magazines. Then I’m always surprised that how flashy & unique dresses people wore in 50’s!

    Congratulationyou did a fantastic job. You’ve waken up the my desire for this jacket. What a great idea to make the collar in a contrasting colour.

      Thank you, it was a lovely pattern to work with. And the collar was a happy accident as before I started I knew I wouldnt have enough of the main fabric!
