Darron is my biggest supporter, cheerleader and promoter. He has always encouraged and complimented my work, he is proud of the things I make. We had been planning for me to make him a blazer for a while now and we were discussing that when the idea rolled around to do another, overlapping 12 outfits in 12 months to overhaul his wardrobe. My 12 outfits have been completely stress free, life has been extremely challenging, but my outfits have been pure enjoyment. So the idea of 12 months of making stuff for the love of my life greatly appealed to me.
Here's what I'm working with: Darron is tall, nearly 6'2", athletic build, with long arms and legs. He struggles to find jackets and blazers with sleeves long enough. He loves colour and unique, interesting one of a kind type garments. He is actually the perfect candidate for a custom made wardrobe.
We've planned a little, shopped a little, pinned a little. There are plans for at least on blazer, a three piece suit, casual trousers and shorts, shirts and tees, long and short sleeved, a couple of cardigans and some pyjamas. I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to getting stuck into this. I've bought the Thread Theory Parklands collection of patterns because its like they were designed just for Darron, and will cover a lot of bases for us, so I'm ready to go! I'll update soon with the more detailed plan for the whole 12 months!
