Another tailoring project

So im starting off a new tailoring project now - this time its just a jacket but abit different as its going to be a traditional suit jacket style, but in denim!

The wearer has a rather full bust, so the jacket looks like it is rippling in the front, but it will sit smoothly.....will keep you up to date!


The pattern drafting was a nightmare! trying to move the darts around so that it sits without too many seams and darts...this is what i came up with - we shall see tomorrow if it fits ok or not???!!!! eek!

The suit....

Ok, well here are some images of one of the projects im working on at the moment....Tailor making suits/clothing

Abit of background: I studied fashion and textile design back in england and after trying to get into the industry through other companies, am now looking at starting up my own business to do it.

Here are some images of the shear amount of hand sewing that has to go inside a full tailor made suit - so if youve ever wondered what the difference is from buying a suit from 'dressman' and not!!!....



SO here it is, just the beginning of the amount of work - Hair canvas (yup made out of hair) is pad stitched by hand and 'taped' so that the jacket front will fall gracefully where you want it to. This also allows the front of the jacket to sit smoothly and not hang it silly/ill-fitting ways.

From here, the lining is attached and then the collar (more hand stitching) and then the sleeves....

Will post them later
