Made to Measure Workwear September 15 2013

Suits you Sir, made to measure work shirt & jacket.

Day 1.

After a first fitting of the toile on Wednesday were good to

go on making up the final workwear jacket & work shirt in

2 shades of navy blue cotton twill in varying weights.

Collar point has been moved forward along with a reduction

in the height of the collar stand.

Pinning the rolled hem before sewing, tricky even with all those pins.

Coffee break. Hornsea pottery mug, a celebration of East Coast

Petrochemical plants, made in 1978 about 10 miles away.

With the hard work done just the buttons & final press before she's ready.

Day 2.

Up early, sure is a beautiful day. Nice Scye too. (sorry pattern cutter joke).

Front jacket panels laid out. Pockets pressed then stitched down.

Stop staring out of the window, Flamborough Head & Danes Dyke.

Workwear Jacket pressed and ready for it's new owner.
