Can the Fabric Make Up For the Bad Tailoring? / Может ли прекрасный материал компенсировать неудачную посадку?

Coat/ пальто: handmade
Tights/ колготки: Transparenze
Shoes/ туфли: Clarks
Beret/ берет: old
Scarf/ шарф: Next
Bag/ сумка: Coach
Gloves/ перчатки: brand unknown

Lipstick/ помада: Dior 999

This contrast is definitely NOT a contrast I am happy about: great fabric and bad tailoring. I've never actually been a fan of any tailor-sewn clothing. Whenever I had anything sewn, it has always been a disappointment. This coat is not an exception.

I don't know why it happens. J Crew's coats fit perfectly without any tailoring. While the coat made based on your own body measurements, after several fittings - just fits wrong! It looked perfectly fine when I stood in front of the mirror at the atelier, but now, in the pictures, this coat looks ... just not perfect!

But of course, the color is amazing. I mean, it is AMAZING! I don't know any other color that would look as bold but still as modest and appropriate, as this fantastic blue one. I am already having so many ideas of color-combination outfits!

Well, that's a dilemma. I have a few choices regarding this coat:

- cut the sleeves off (because the sleeves are the main problem here) and turn it into the trendy vest-coat, or

- wear the coat unbuttoned only, which definitely conceals the whole fitting problem, or

- wear the coat as it is, regardless of all those wrinkles and stuff, because I really love it!

What do you think?

Итак, моек новое пальто, сшитое в ателье. Как вы уже, наверное, догадались из названия поста - я им недовольна. Точнее говоря, недовольна я посадкой. Цвет и, вообще, материал просто шикарны! А, может быть, просто у меня предвзятое отношение к вещам, сшитым на заказ? Никогда мне еще ничего не нравилось.

Вот и это пальто: в ателье, когда я стояла перед зеркалом, мне казалось, что все отлично. Теперь же я недовольна. Хотя пока не хочу делать поспешных выводов - буду "обкатывать" пока это пальто в разных образах. Сегодня - самый безошибочный вариант: красное и синее!

А что вы думаете?

  6. I think coat fit perfect on you, and I love this color:-) You had also great idea to wear accesories in red.

  7. Dear Olga, in my opinion the coat looks on the pictures very good and I adore the wonderful colour mix! You look perfect <3 But I know this dilemma with the handmade things - in the end I'm mostly not satisfied especially when I sewed the garment :)
    Wish you a happy Sunday!
