Suit for Hershy

For the month of March, Jessica and I wanted to focus on men's clothing. We'll be sharing a bunch of tips, projects and tutorials for all the men and boys in your life. To start out, I'll be sharing a project I made for our little brother.

The jacket is my favorite part of all, because of the pick-stitching. It took extra time, but it was totally worth it. It just looks so handsome. I modified a vintage pattern for this suit. I altered the size to fit Hershy perfectly, and I added double vents in the back of the jacket,
