One reason I have not been on the forum as much is because been working on my first machine sewing project: three piece suit. First, you need trial garments and the hardest part is pinning oneself, free acupuncture. Ha. The main inspiration is Opa's two-piece DB suit from the late '40s. I love the suppressed waist, high-rise, and no pleats. Being I have larger hips compared to my lower legs, don't need pleats and instead leg width. A suit should improve ones appearance and I hope to do the same. Part of the reason I bought used pants to find what felt comfortable. Then, for a trouser pattern used pants ripped by a then foster puppy Daithi a couple years ago, adding leg width, rise, plus widened the waistband to two inches to match the cuffs. The vest I used a vintage McCalls, added lapels so wouldn't look off the rack, suppressed the waist, and considering going from five to six button since I am 6'-2" per what Matt S. said on the Bond page. The coat is new McCalls which I reduced the lapel width so just a little over half way across the chest and changed the lapel profile with more curve. Further, the sleeve patterns were rubbish, so drafted my own and had reviewed by a seamstress friend. Took three times before got the twisted wrinkles out realizing it was sleeve pitch; I am self taught so doing a lot of trial and "error". By the way, I was only planning to have the cream and silver dog in a picture, as always by my side, especially when sewing, so figured Serebro deserved credit. However, Ember the Golden insisted being in the picture first, my retired Service Dog. And Daithi photo bombed without me noticing until reviewing the pictures. So yes, I am eccentric and have a taste for eclectic vintage. Anything else?
