Hello Hendrick. Are you Dutch by any chance?

Hi Henry,

Yes, I am dutch. Although I must have spent about 99 percent of the last 25 years abroad...
Are you dutch as well?

Regards, Hendrick

I'm not, but I live in NL and I just guessed because you wrote 'industrie'. Other than that I'd never have guessed! Jolly good English there sir.

Hi again,

Thanks for the compliment; if only my sewing was half as good...
Are you a tailor for a living or as a personal luxury?

Regards, Hendrick

Not for a main living, but I do make for people. Without an illustrious client list there's not much money in it.

I am Denise. I was a member of the old forum. I have sewn for myself and others for the past 50+ years. Recently (by this I mean over the last 10-12 years), I have developed an interest in pattern cutting and tailoring techniques. I found the old forum to be very informative. I look forward to participating in this Bespoke Cutter and Tailor forum. Thank you for carrying the torch forward.

I remember you from the Cutter & Tailor. That forum hasn't moved here, it's still operational, but the boss seems to be on permanent vacation. This is not a mere mirror, but another place.

Bienvenue.

Trousers that fit
« Reply #146 on: March 15, 2019, 08:02:12 AM »
Yeah, well I'm here too, from the "other" site, which seems to be unavailable. Hello to old friends and new!
I am a serious student, into making trousers, and luckily surrounded by good materials here in Italy. Nothing pleases me more than dissecting a tailor-made garment and making notes for future projects. Nothing amateurish about my approach. Have downloaded the key texts and bought one or three recent books on the subject. I go to sleep thinking of changes in the fork etc. Dream of making trousers for others at a high price.

I was going to bite my tongue on this one but having some grasp of the problem, I could not resist a comment. While some may look at the behind of others for pleasure, usually such targets well know how to "package" such attributes as to present that end of them in the most favourable light but for the skilled tailor, persons who have less than what they may perceive as a well presented behind are potential customers who with enough skill can be made to look a lot better with the right garment design.

Translate that into ordinary language, a skilled tailor can make a pair of pants for someone with a saggy bum look one hell of a lot better.

Now recently I saw an article reviewing a new design of jeans that were supposed to do exactly that. A high stretch denim cut on the old "lift and separate" theory of brassiere design but the fit was so tight they looked like they had been sprayed on. The targets looked late 20s to early 30s and while the design did lift their behind, they were so tight that they mis-shaped the legs which were less than flattering to the wearer. They were also being sold at some outrageous price for something that was most probably spat out some slave labour facility in south east Asia.
