WSJ: Bespoke Suits
If you're interested in tailoring, here's an interesting article in the WSJ about getting a bespoke suit that fits well. It's all about the shoulders --- check the space between the shoulders and the location of the seam joining the shoulder and the sleeve.
I am a science/medical communicator who loves fashion and making beautiful clothes. I love tailoring jackets and coats; learning new sewing techniques; and wrestling with the mysteries of achieving a perfect fit. I live with a very supportive husband who has acquired an alarmingly large volume of knowledge about sewing, and a confident cat named Simon who insists on luxuriating on freshly washed and pre-shrunk yardage. I also design patterns for hand-knitters -- to see some of my work, check out www.jeankaori.com/blog. Thanks for visiting!
