It has been a busy couple of days I have been drafting a man's suit and yesterday I put together the mock up. The only fabric of which there was enough for a suit happened to be a dusty rose bridal satin so that's what I used LOL! When the gentleman sees it I think he will be, shall we say a bit taken aback or surprised! It really does look great and should fit well if all goes according to plan... It takes a real man to try on a dusty rose suit don't you think?
The jacket is a standard tailored blazer with the slim lapel, notched collar, a breast pocket and two welt pocket on the body, inside there will be a hidden breast pocket and it will have 2 side back vents. The pants are a slim fit with diagonal cut pockets at the front and 2 back welt pockets, pretty standard. I look forward to the fitting and then completing the suit, don't get to work on men's wear very often so this is a good refresher for teaching the men's wear section of the program.
If I'm allowed to post a picture of the fitting I will, he is coming this weekend, here's hoping!
