This is the suit in all its glory. I like how it fits. The trousers need a bit of work at the bottoms. Long story short: My calves protrude to the sides, very hard to correct with trousers' cut since I like them cut on the narrow side. It doesn't bother me that much, though; at least the wrinkling isn't around the knees. And here's a closeup of the shoulder: Slight concave shape courtesy of handmade padding. Handwork is great. Here, padstitching: Here's the visible handwork around the armhole: And here's something new to me: handwork along the side back seam. I'm going to another trouser fitting tomorrow. Any suggestions on improving the line are greatly appreciated.
