The Making of a Custom Suit!

From concept to sourcing materials to drafting a pattern to creating a test fit and then the final product, custom orders are SO much fun for me...and SO much work. :) But I genuinely love the process of designing something just for YOU! In this blog, I want to share the process of bringing a custom garment to life.

Before I tell you about the very fun, challenging, and exciting process of creating a custom suit, I must introduce you to my friend (and fellow designer!), Nhu Nhu! Nhu Nhu designs jewelry and has her own brand Mochi Mochi. She handmakes everything herself as well. Each piece is so unique and elegant. :)

Nhu Nhu came to me knowing that she wanted a pink houndstooth suit with sparkly fringe. She likes things a little "extra" (as she likes to put it!), so I was very excited to tackle this unique project.

I started by sourcing fabrics from pink tweeds and knit fabric until I landed on one both Nhu Nhu and I loved.

I sourced way more fabric swatches than what's pictured, but here is just a few :)

This is the fabric that we chose^
This pink houndstooth fabric had some stretch to it (it's actually a knit fabric), so we decided it didn't need a lining. Nhu Nhu liked the idea of a "cardigan"-like style for the cropped blazer. She chose to have no lining (only facings), no shoulder pads, and no additional trims that give a suit jacket structure in order to achieve a more relaxed fit blazer. I also sourced some sparkly fringe and buttons.

Next, I created a custom pattern just for Nhu Nhu. I drafted the pattern on paper and made a test fit. A test fit is like a first trial for the design. I take my first pattern draft and cut it out of scrap fabric. The test fit fabric has to have similar properties (weight, stretch, drape) to the fabric I plan on using for the final product so that I know the fit will be accurate once I am ready to make the final product. 
Next, I sew the test fit together and see what needs adjusted for the final garment. For this test fit I adjusted the length of the skirt and blazer.

After creating a sample that I was happy with, I was ready to cut into the actual fabric.

CRYPTO CURRENCY REVERSAL; WEB BAILIFF CONTRACTOR
The world of online finance, with its promises of quick riches and easy gains, can be a complex landscape.  For me, that landscape turned into a nightmare when I fell prey to a ruthless scam on an exchange platform.  The dizzying sum of $566,797.00,  my life’s savings,  vanished into thin air,  leaving me stranded on a desolate island of financial ruin.  Desperation gnawed at me,  a constant reminder of my folly and the callous disregard of the scammers who had taken everything from me. I desperately searched for a lifeline,  a solution to my predicament.  My online searches led me to a plethora of so-called “hackers,”  each promising a quick fix, a magical solution to my woes.  But each encounter, each attempt to reclaim my stolen funds,  ended in further disappointment and loss.  It was a vicious cycle of betrayal,  a relentless barrage of empty promises that only deepened my despair. Then,  amidst the swirling vortex of online scams and charlatans,  I stumbled upon a name that resonated with a promise of hope and redemption – Web Bailiff Contractor.  Their reputation as the “best hacker on the web” was whispered in hushed tones throughout the shadowy underbelly of the digital world.  I was skeptical, and cautious,  but driven by a desperate need to reclaim what was rightfully mine. My initial contact with Web Bailiff Contractor was a revelation.  Their professionalism and expertise were instantly evident.  They understood the nuances of my situation, the intricate web of deceit that had ensnared me.  They didn’t offer empty promises;  instead, they provided a clear roadmap,  explaining the challenges and the potential pitfalls of recovering my lost funds. The wait,  though agonizing,  was far less excruciating than the endless cycle of scams I had endured.  After just two days,  Web Bailiff Contractor delivered the news that I had longed for,  the news that brought a glimmer of hope back to my life.  They had recovered a substantial portion of my stolen funds,  a testament to their prowess in the digital realm, and their mastery of ethical hacking techniques. My experience with Web Bailiff Contractor was a turning point, a testament to the power of integrity and expertise in a digital world that can be challenging and fraught with deceit.  They are more than just hackers;  they are champions of justice,  digital knights fighting against the forces of darkness that lurk in the shadows of the internet. I urge anyone who has fallen victim to online scams,  anyone who has felt the sting of betrayal in the digital world,  to reach out to Web Bailiff Contractor.  They are a lifeline,  a beacon of hope,  a testament to the enduring power of human ingenuity and determination. The digital world can be a complex place,  but Web Bailiff Contractor stands as a bastion of hope, a force for good, and a reminder that even in the darkest of times,  there is always a fighting chance to reclaim what has been stolen.
