Interesting post by a young woman who's worked at Anderson & Sheppard for three years. She's collecting samples of her work to be evaluated by the body who award Savile Row Bespoke (SRB) diplomas.  From other posts she's contributed I can see that before her apprenticeship she earned a degree in fashion design, then did a tailoring course (or program) at Newham College, which seems to send a fair number of apprentices to SR.  Then I assume she worked at least 8 hours a day nearly every day for three years at A & S. She started her apprenticeship not having made a jacket.

I noticed she has put a buttonhole in the right lapel of the jacket. So she intends to wear it herself?

 

The best of luck in future for her, well deserved from the look of the jacket.

Its good to see a youngster do this much work and I hope she succeeds in her diploma. Must be a sign of age but I remember people in their apprenticeships actually bothering to learn a massive amount of things and being really good at what they do. A very famous London gunsmith Joseph Manton was known to stay back after work and work late into the night to fix all the mistakes that the kids had made during the day and its pretty much the case that if you have this dedication, you will produce fine things but unless you have it, you will only shovel out rubbish.

 

Over the last 30 years or so craftsmanship like this is part of a dying breed yet of late there seems to be a revival of highly skilled people so there is a chance that genuine craftsmanship will survive, youngsters like this are very encouraging.

Mansie,

 

She says that the blue jacket was the first jacket she made for herself.

I posted the link to the entry because it's fascinating to learn how people around the world are trained nowadays and also to demonstrate how much work and time are involved.
