I’ve been in the house since about June 25th, I’ve stepped out a few times but mainly just confined to these white walls. So my time isn’t wasted I’ve started drafting patterns for my men’s and women’s suits. My ultimate goal is to be able to create garments for myself and stop shopping in stores, thats definitely a while away from now but I’m building towards it.
A tailored suit is something quite difficult to do, I’m not really into cookie cutter shapes because it’s pointless for me to follow a pattern bought from a store, put in the work to sew it and then say look at “my” suit. (thats not your suit thats Hancock Fabrics hoe!) So I actually took a pencil and a ruler and created my own shapes, and as I tweak things it will get better and better. Thats how everything is done around here, constant tweeking and reformation to make every little thing better hence Made Monarchs, and Iamme!
With the quick preview below of course all my edges are open and nothings ironed down, I have the basic shape that I want: Slim European fit, high thin lapels, short jacket that comes just below belt, and low harem pants. Once I get rid of some of the frompy-ness and get the fit perfect “You ain’t Neva Gone Not See Me in a Suit” (thats my new quote”. More updates soon.
