I like wearing suits in summer. With neat and clear shapes, to be taken seriously, but in cheerful fabrics to avoid a bossy look.
This is a suit that I sewed last year. I wanted to practice the reverse collar and the welt pocket. The first was a success, the second was such a failure that I had to cut out the bottom of the jacket from the waist. You see the final cropped version, and not the former one, more classical.
The fabric is a thick printed cotton, heavy enough to spare me the interfacing part. The pants were made according to the basic pattern, which I’ve already shared it here.
I wear the two pieces together for the photos, but in my every day life, I wear them separately. It brings a touch of color without overwhelming the whole look.
