Part 2 of the the bespoke fitting for DS

Continuing from the part one…(http://subskin.tumblr.com/post/92706070492)

Apart from the minor adjustments here and there, I am readjusting the collar  for a tighter fit around the neck of DS and ultimately for a better overall balance (mainly for the front panels of the jacket). After I have done that I decide to lift the back panels for the correct front to back balance of the jacket: tighter fitting collar lifted the front of the jacket and the back needed to be lifted as well to be balanced correctly. I will compensate the length of the jacket at the hem, front and back). 

This is a first commission by DS (second fitting) and everything that we adjust on the fitting garment will be also adjusted on DS’s paper pattern too. 

Part 3 to be continued…

Bespoke Fitting

Second Fitting for DS - Part 1

A few pictures taken during the second fitting of a suit on DS, a good client who has a broad chest/large arms and built lower body from athletic activities he has undertaken during his lifetime.

I don’t have the basted fitting (first fitting) pictures unfortunately as I didn’t think I was going to document any of it, however I thought it would be interesting to show through some pictures what takes places in a typical bespoke fitting.

I have added captions in each photos to illustrate what I am doing in the each picture, and hopefully viewers can understand and see some of the processes that are relevant in fitting/tailoring of a bespoke garment.

We are fitting a single breasted 3 rolled to 2 suit on DS. Some of the adjustments made during the baste fitting (first fitting) have taken effect on the garment and is shaping up nicely.

to be continued in part 2…
