Description

This fall the plaid suits worn by the glamorous “somebodies” during fashion week in London, NY, etc. inspired me to sew my own plaid suit. For the blazer, the predominant style was double breasted with welted flap pockets and a peaked lapel. I know I can count on BurdaStyle for advanced fashion details like this. Burdastyle 7/2015, model 125 and 9/2018 model 117 are almost identical. I chose the latest incarnation from the Sept 2018 issue. It is in tall sizes. I am an inch shorter than the tall size height but I decided that was not enough lack of height to worry about alterations. The fabric was a woven plaid, wool gabardine in grey, red and blue. Though it was a lot of work, I love how this turned out. AndI made a pair of matching pants, the high waisted, tapered leg style from Burdastyle 12 2010 108.

    Wow! You look fantastic. I love the plaid/tartan fabric. Both pieces are fab together and separate and dont get me started on the cream boots! I love them and had a similar pair in the 80’s. Your sewing is impeccable and the photos are just so full of fun. Love this xx
