Hi, I have been looking for a bespoke tailor for women for a long time now. It's difficult to find one within my price range in the US, so I found a tailor that was willing to do long distance tailoring. I received the suits for my first fitting last night.
I commissioned two suits to be made. One with one button, and the other with two buttons. For some reason, the two button suit fits much better than the one button one, so I am showing photos below of the two button suit.
It is about 4.5 inches (11cm) too big on the waist, and I am trying to have it altered down a bit. I cinched in the waist in the back to get an idea of how it would look like slimmer:
The armpit holes felt a little too low/big, and I was planning to request it to be altered higher.
I prefer a more fitted suit, but not to the point of being tight/unprofessional. Could you please suggest any other alterations I should make?
I know it's difficult to tell from the photos I took, but I would also appreciate feedback on the quality of the workmanship. The suit is fully canvased and hand made, made from Super 120s. I would be curious to know what you think the appropriate price should be.
I am clueless about tailoring, and don't have much knowledge, other than having had a few bespoke coats and jackets made in London a few years ago, so please pardon any ignorance.
Thank you so much for your help!
