Description

Truth be told, this suit is unfinished because I was delayed by a nasty cold. FYI Sewing with a head cold is like sewing tipsy.
Anyway, My client needed to have his suit asap, since he didn’t have a backup outfit, so we decided to make a few shortcuts and leave off the pockets on the vest and make mock back pockets on the pants (to be completed at a later time).
The pants are tailored and had about 20 pattern pieces. A true nightmare when pressed for time. The vest was simple except for a waist lengthening alteration that was needed.
I made the bow tie as well.

Well, It was all worth it, because my client and his wife both loved it and said he got plenty of compliments on his look.
Moments like this confirm why I love what I do. So grateful.

    This looks really smart and dressy and quite “old world”. Great that the client is happy too.
