(The photograph you see in the listing are of a lady who had this suit made from this pattern, by one of my gentleman customers. Nigel has been dressmaking for 20 years and there is a long tradition of tailoring and dressmaking in his family. The lemon fabric is Moire Taffeta and costs £4 per meter. Attention to pattern detail was important to Nigel as he re-worked this pattern to the customers sizing and personal body form. This took time and some attention required, however he was happy with the outcome of the re-working. Once this was done the actual making of the suit, including the lining (which was a lot of hand sewing) took about 20 hours. The lovely lady in the picture is his friend and was thrilled with the outcome, and will be wearing this outfit to a function. The attention to detail and the beautiful craftmanship that Nigel has applied to this garment is SUPERB, and I am not surprised seeing as he is from a tradition of Tailoring and Dressmaking! The outcome is stunning and I love the attention given to the slightly contrasted collar. This is a BEAUTIFUL example of a Patou Vintage 1950s suit, made in not-an-overly expensive modern fabric. Well done Nigel! I think it is just lovely!)
