Amazing! I hope your boys know how lucky they are -- suits made from Italian wool and paisley silk!

They look very handsome in their suits-nice work. I think this pattern is just great to have available if a boy needs something for a special event.

Thanks for the review ... they turned out lovely. I've been wanted to try and make one for my husky son but wondered about the result looking professional. I think I will give it a go!

its called tailoring a step by step guide to creating beautiful customised garments the ISBN is 978-184543-057-3 i got it off amazon it only covers jackets but the pictures and guides are excellent. i used the linings to back the waistcoats and self line the pockets as well cheers

Wow! Great job! I love the lining in each of the jackets. Can I ask? What tailoring book did you refer to? You've inspired me to try making a little boy's suit! :-)

Wow, they look fantastic! You did an awesome job and your hard work has really paid off. I think the best compliment you can get is when your kids want you to make more :o)

they were for a wedding I got the fabric for about �25 so it wasnt too expensive yet learnt so much from making them thanks

Wow, you are brave. Don't you worry that they'll grow out of it too fast? My boy grows at a stunning rate so I don't make him really nice things. Too much time for too little wear.

They look so smart! What a wonderful job you did! I would love to make a suit for my little man. You have inspired me!!
