Suits You, Sir!

I finished my suit a while ago. Yes, the one that took me ages. I never had to chance to wear it until I went out for dinner with my friends a few days ago to celebrate Chinese New Year.

The pattern was drafted from my own measurements and it is of a slim fitting type. The fabric is a blue fine merino wool that was woven in UK. In terms of the sewing technique, I mixed in hand sewing techniques with machine sewing. I tried to emulate the bespoke techniques such as the shaping of the collar and lapel.

Overall, this suit fits me pretty well and I am very happy with my first attempt in making a bespoke suit. I am going to try making a second suit but this time with a more denser material. And with mistakes learnt from this suit, I hope that my second attempt will be more finer and incorporate bespoke techniques such as hand canvasing.
