Dupion suit

Here is a suit in silk dupion I made for a client to wear to her son's wedding. The jacket and trousers are in a dark red shot with black, and the camisole and jacket collar & cuffs are in a brighter red embroidered with a darker floral pattern.

The jacket is underlined with silk organza to give it more body, though this is a fairly lightweight, unstructured garment.

The design was based on a picture my client found on the internet, however it is in the fabric she wanted, longer, and with trousers rather than a skirt.
