I have at last decided on the design of my two new suits., shown here. I am rather restricted in my choices as a lapeless style suits me best, detail best kept to take away from my neck which is18"!
The second sketched design is to be made in a rust wool with leather buttons and pocket flaps and the other in black with blue stripe,from the Fashion Fabrics Club, an online concern with thousands of fabrics from which to choose.
The designs for both are inspired by a Lilli Ann suit from the late 50s early 60s. Lilli Ann was wonderful fashion house based in San Francisco.
Can't wait to get started!
