What I wore today

I was working from home but wanted to wear this outfit so I could take photos.
From the feel on my skin I can tell you this fabric is wool or wool mix, and is obviously a men's suiting. as you can see. But a high quality light weight one. I made good use of the 2.6 metre length I had, getting trousers, skirt and waistcoat fronts from it.
I like the waistcoat though the fit needs a little more refinement to fit perfectly. But waistcoat and trousers gives a long line which I like whilst allowing the top underneath to be something more fun.

Going forwards I might make a few of these trousers + waistcoat combinations and then throw a purchased plain jacket over the top. There is almost always enough fabric left from cutting the trousers out to cut waistcoat fronts.

I like having the pockets in the trousers, though I'd like to change the angle slightly and perhaps make the pocket deeper. I could also add little pockets to the waistcoat.

This would be a TNT work combo for me and very practical I think as its relatively smart and means I can wear sensible shoes to walk from the station, or when my knees hurt.

That waistcoat pattern really makes the most of your waist and shows it off and you look really happy and relaxed in the outfit.
