Andrew gave me a chuckle on Thursday, he was so worried he would not have enough fabric to cut out his pants and upper and under sleeve, so he brought the fabric and said that seeing I'm the magician in this relationship please do my magic and find enough fabric to cut out the pieces LOL!!! I keep saying I'm only a tailor not a magician but I guess this time he was right because there was more than enough fabric for both the sleeves AND pants plus the waistband pocket insert and change left over!!! He took many pix of the pattern placement so he could duplicate it.
We are going to Skype early in the week so he can work on the finishing touches on Thursday on the jacket. The wedding he is wearing the suit to is on Friday if you can believe it! It was quite an undertaking for a student to WANT to make a suit this early in his studies to actually wear to a function! It is a lot of work to successfully complete this at this stage of experience AND such a short timeline. All this plus he made the groom's shirt with French cuffs, imagine having the courage to make the most important garment a man will wear in his life while still a student!!! That takes guts.
