I do not know to where I should write this I choose this because the word learning and quality garments were in the title.
I thought you should see this too - I'm speechless about that craftmanship.
Yesterday I got a mail from a befriended tailor. He showed me some shirts he did recently. Here is one of them:
I asked him about the fabric because I thought the fit of the fabric pattern is amazing. He send me some pics and I give you here 2 of them
He wrote: It is called Batik sutra atbm. the key word is : Membatik.
The fabric is made from synthetic silk. And they draw the picture (I mean the flowers) by hand
(with wax and there are severall clever dyeing processes). It takes maybe a few weeks to a month to make (to painting) a Batik.
Sometimes it is made not from silk but from cotton fabric.
The fabric is 250cm times 112cm .
See the pattern laying:
Next picture: The paper pattern one side of the body:
You see beside the back pattern , there are long vertical flowers, they are for collar and under collar and the small vertical flower are for the cuff. Next pic: Pattern for the other side
The piece of fabric is designed for just one shirt ! Just Beautifull
For those who are interested I have found a video in english
