Well, here finally are the finished photos for the suit. I didn’t realize that I had left this project hanging (blog-wise) for so long—sorry about that!
I was very happy with the pants pattern and instructions. I think this is the best-fitting pair of pants my son has ever owned.
My conclusion about Vogue 8890 is that this may be a good place to start for someone who has never done tailoring before. It would be best to study a tailoring book such as Roberto Cabrera’s Classic Tailoring Techniques , or Tailoring, the Classic Guide to Sewing the Perfect Jacket. That being said, I would add that it is a great thing that Vogue Patterns offers this gem of a modern, European-cut suit. Hopefully they will keep it in print for a long time.
