Wedding Outfit

Shirt and trousers were made for my partner to wear at a family wedding in May. He has very broad shoulders but narrow waist and hips which makes buying trousers difficult.
He wanted something classical, comfortable and cool, that he could wear again.
I used a very old vintage Simplicity pattern as the basis and added the pleated front on the shirt.

Material Notes

Shirt: 100% silk
Trousers: Silk/Linen blend
Hand made shell buttons




Spring, Summer
Garment Type
Linen, Silk
