First MTM suit, looking for advice on fabric - Page 2

One Guabello fabric looked absolutely perfect as a swatch, but when they showed me a suit in similar tone it appeared much too light for the rather formal uses I envision.
Thank you for the link. I will read with great interest.

Hi IJReilly

Yes, it can come out a little different from swatches so always expect a shade difference even if a very small one. Have to say, is rare, but expect it sometimes.

I would say that generally a med or light swatch will a lot of the time come out lighter as it is in a whole suit rather than a folder or booklet. But then again it is normally just lighter shades that can catch you out but am always warning clients that a med grey or blue grey will be more summery then they expect.

When will you have the suit ready?

I am probably going to be biased
