Tutorial Notes

Before we go any further, let me just say that there is no fast and easy way to make a tailored suit

This project is going to be a lot of work; you can expect to put about 100-150 hours of work time into it, depending on your experience, work speed, and to what degree you want your suit to be a perfect replica. 

It also requires advanced sewing skills, so if you're an inexperienced sewer and/or tailor, please practice, practice, practice (!) before attempting to work with your actual replica (or original) fabrics! I cannot stress enough the importance of honing your skills before tackling a project of this magnitude using the (typically expensive) fabrics. 

You should know that there are many different suit-making techniques, and just about every tailor I've ever talked with or read about seems to have a different opinion on the matter. For what it's worth, this tutorial is mine! 

That said, the suit-making method I present in this tutorial is primarily a hybrid of those presented in two fantastic books: Classic Tailoring Techniques for Menswear and Tailoring: The Classic Guide to Sewing the Perfect Jacket, with a bit of Vintage Couture Tailoring and a few of my own techniques thrown into the mix. 

The whole process is almost entirely subjective, and it's about what works for you, so while I'm thoroughly covering how to make the entire suit, keep in mind that my goal with the following tutorial is to present the "easiest" way to make a fully tailored suit, and the methods I'll be demonstrating are simply my opinion regarding the best ways to accomplish this. 

I highly recommend reading the three books I mentioned above and determining for yourself the methods you feel work best for you, but regardless, if you only follow the instructions in this tutorial, you'll be good to go for this project!

Of course, if you are an experienced sewer/seamstress/costumer/tailor, feel free to use our sewing pattern to construct the suit in whatever manner you prefer (keeping an eye on the specific details, of course)!

Now that you're familiar with the suit's construction and have determined your sizing ...
