suit pattern for young men

flsmw | Posted in Patterns on

Any idea where I can find a suit pattern for young men?

My middle school son loves to dress up on Friday at school. It is very hard to find a suit to fit him off the rack. At his size, the suits are sold as a set and the pants are alwasy too tight if the jacket fits.

So I wanted to make him a suit. I’ve made some nice professional looking blazers for my daughter before, so why not?

Because there are no patterns for his size, that’s why.

Patterns range from little boys to men.

Any help or direction would be appreciated.

    Wondering if you could make him a blazer/jacket with matching pants?  There is a nice jacket pattern by Kwik Sew #3485 that comes in sizes from small to xxlarge.  They have size charts on their website; maybe you could look there to see if your son's measurements fit into any of those sizes.  Good luck & keep us posted on what you find.  Maybe you will get some more options from others on this site.

    mens linen or cotton suit pattern from vogue.

    fabric recommendations include cotton and linen and blends.  I haven't started mine yet but it seems straight forward and includes a lot of functional pieces.
