Custom suit success!

I am always so pleased by the custom sewing process- I really get to know a client, understand what they like, and ultimately create something that I know they will love and appreciate. However, it's also kind of sad for me- each custom garment is a real labor of love, that in the end I don't get to keep. I also wind up missing seeing my client on a regular basis. This is especially the case with this custom suit for a most wonderful woman named Stacie, who not only dreamed of this wildly amazing suit made from toile fabric, but is also a florist getting married in the Chelsea flower district in sort of flash mob style. She did bring along another project so I'll get to hang out with her again soon, but I'll miss this fabric with all it's amazing sketches. (And also she brought a few plants for me along to the fittings!)
