The title says it all, today’s outfit post will be all about this handmade two piece belted suit! I’ve always wanted to make myself a proper tailored suit and when I found this pinstriped fabric, I knew it was about time to make myself one! I went for a pinstriped fabric, just because, it is one of the most chic fabric, in my opinion. And I love the fact that it can extremely boyish or super feminine, depending on how it’s worn.
This 2 piece suit is actually so easy to sew, once the patterns are done, that I made everything in a night, excluding the belt. The belt was actually the trickiest part, not because of it’s shape but because of the loop hardwares. Those kind of thin oversized o rings are impossible to find! (Brands have theirs custom made, even high street brands…) So impossible that I had to make my own… And God know how many obscene words I said while looking for the right wire thickness. I actually ended up buying wire choker and once I resized them and got the ends strongly taped together, it actually made the trick!
About the overall design, I do think that I need to work on the patterns a little bit more. It might look good to most people, but as a huge perfectionist, I’m still not completely happy with this suit. I love it but there are a few changes that I want to make here and there. Especially on the blazer, I want to slightly change the sleeves and the cut of the blazer, so you might see more of this suit in the future!
I hope you’ll like this new design of mine!
