The Groom's Suit. My DIY Wedding

Added Sep 19, 2014

Earlier this year I got married and was hoping to make the wedding as DIY as possible. So I couldn’t resist making my ‘husband to be’s’ suit! I nearly accomplished my goal of sewing the entire suit, but ended up one article short. I made the trousers, vest and tie… but ran out of time with the shirt. Overall I am super happy with the fit and tailoring of the trousers and vest.
I utilised my favourite pant pattern “Burdastyle Jochen” and altered them for a skinny fit. I choice another Burdastyle Pattern, “Jason” for the vest
I have detailed my process on fickle sense

    Howly mowly! Great job, very stylish, lovely fabric! I got married this weekend and I made my own wedding dress, but his costume was a no go for me :p I only finished my dress 2 weeks before the wedding. Now he’s jealous of what you did so I think I have a new project for the coming months… curious for your dress!
