Since I won the last Friday Challenge on Styleforum I’m hosting this weeks challenge. Since last weeks theme was “No Blues”, I decided to go for an "All Blues" challenge this week.

New pictures from Pitti 86 keep popping up across the blogoshpere. These are from Meoutfit.

2nd attempt at the Style Forum “No Blues” Friday Challenge, since my last entry actually contained blue window panes. Good day to bring out one of my E-F-V suits as well.

A beautiful couple - our member EFV is starting is own line (I’ll update on tumblr as well as on the forum), and judging from his taste levels, it should be something well worth looking into.

Cheers!

The “No Blues” challenge

I randomly wear at least one blue garment in all my outfits. So the Friday challenge on Style Forum this week was a bit of a challenge.

Anonymous asked: Congrats on that self made safari jacket! It is great to see people try things they never have done. I am about to embark on making a jacket with some heavier weight light blue linen. Been teaching myself hand sewing. My 70 yr old tailor for my clothes looks at me with amusement when he explains some tailoring details etc. Did you canvas it on the lapels? Did you use a regular iron for curving/pressing it? Machine stitched the long seams? Buttonholes? Not on tumblr so this is anon, Cheers!

Cheers!

Nice to hear about another enthusiast trying out a bit of DIY tailoring.

I didn’t canvas the lapels on the safari jacket, I will try that on the next one I make though. I haven’t used an iron yet. When it’s all put together I will press it with a really heavy iron though. It’s a bit harder to get good results with a regular iron. I’ve machine stitched all the long seams yes, and hand stitched pockets, lapels et c. Hand made buttonholes of course.

Good luck!

Erik
