Stripy Business:-)

Added May 18, 2014

Mykolayv, Ukraine






To make this stripy suit I used old Burda 8/2007, patterns # 101( jacket) and #103A ( trousers). That year I bought the issue because of this suit and its time came at last ( although the issue has many nice patterns, it was untouched till this April when I cut the suit ) :-))
The suit consists of a jacket and trousers. The jacket is quite complex: it has an interesting double collar ( the lower one is English and the upper is shawl; welt pockets hidden under the one-piece with side part flap. And the pants have a not typical band. So the item has a lot of reasons to check the tailor’s skills and not to make you boring and distracted while you are sewing :-)))

Material Notes

Some blend of natural and viscose fibres for the suit and viscose for the lining.

    Ой, ой, ой, яке гарне! Треба дiйсно мати золотi руки, щоб зi звичайного та трохи сумного костюму зробити таку красу! Шикарний пояс до брюк! А як рiвненько всi полосочки сходяться! Ви просто швейна фея! Я iще не балувалася такими серьйозними технiками, але знайшла в Дублiнi Tailoring Academy. Як пощастить, то запишуся на курси з вересня. А поки буду насолоджуватися Вашим швейним мистецтвом :)

      Мої щоки просто палають від задоволення таке почути:-) Намагатимусь не впасти з тої висоти, на яку ти мене весь час піднімаєш, з іншого боку – це забов’язує. тому дуже дуже дякую:-)))
      Жакети та пальто – була моя спеціалізація, шила їх досить багато. А для себе – скільки їх потрібно, зараз роблю це не часто – лише, щоб навички не втратити, та і якась вередлива стала щодо фасонів:-)

    Awesome business suit! Or any suit!! You look very professional in this suit. Your workmanship is great! All those strips to match. I really like the collar and waistband. You have styled it so nicely with your top, etc. You have done an amazing job of this !!

      Thank you, Mary, very much:-)

      Sometimes I like to make hard projects. And I like wearing suits but last times don’t make them often.
