The suit is a traditional form of men's formal clothes in the Western world and has been around for about four hundred years as a suit of a matching coat, trousers and waistcoat. After the end of the first World War, most men adopted the short lounge coated suit. During the decades that followed, the size of the lapel had changed from wide to a very narrow size. Suit jackets were also cut as straight as possible without any indication of a waistline. Lately, the wearing of suits has become far less common than it once was and is now usually reserved for formal and business activities.

This pattern is very professionally designed. It was easy to follow the instructions, and the suit fit perfectly. I used a goodwill man's suit coat which was a thicker fabric and it made up adorably. I used the soda **** shirt and vest pattern with a few alterations (like l,onger sleeves). It's wonderful with the suit. My boy is ready for holiday parties!
This is an easy pattern and a good fit, however it is missing the pattern piece for the pocket flap. So your just gonna have to wing it or leave it off and put on a pocket.
