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!

    Aria I think you did an amazing job !
    Regardless of how difficult the belt loop was, the extra work totally paid off, well done.

    You did a great job!! I haven’t made anything in such a long time. I definitely never made a suit jacket either. I imagine the shoulders to be tricky! I love the ring detail, it was worth hunting for.

    Pour moi qui suis incapable de faire quoique ce soit de mes mains, je serai toujours émerveillée de voir quelqu’un faire ses propres vêtements!

    L’ensemble est superbe et j’aime beaucoup le détail du fermoir circulaire. Comme toi je suis une fan des rayures, surtout sur ce genre d’ensemble.
    C’est intéressant d’apprendre au passage que ce genre de chose est fait sur mesure même pour les marques de fast-fashion.

    Bonne soirée,
    Emmanuelle

    Your pinstripe suit is so chic and I can definitely tell that it is of such high quality from the cut and the way it looks in your pictures. I think your whole post is amazing

            Will do. I’ve always wanted a wide leg pant that comes past my ankles.
