Teal & Tweed || Bespoke Suit & Beau Gant Glove

Dreams do come true!  Eric made me the most beautiful couture powder blue Scottish tweed suit, with roped shoulders and hand embroidered beading & pearls.  We combined elements of the 30's - 50's, with a focus on the 40's.  Strong pagoda shoulder & intricate beading of the 1940's, a nipped waist & powder pastel color of the 1950's, and a darted double vented skirt of longer length from the 1930's.  Traditional arrowhead tacks embellish the front of the skirt {hand done as always - non fused} and matching the jacket, pearl buttons adorn the back.  As with true bespoke, you can see that the jacket holds it's shape even on the dressform, without any pinning or padding in the chest.  This is what hours of shaping canvas through labored hand stitches will bring!

As if made for this suit, my teal Beau Gant gloves were a phenomenal match to the embroidery.   Classic & vibrant, this shade is reminiscent of the feminine colors of the 1950's, and I'm excited to style in a myriad of ways throughout winter!
