Sleek Red Viscose Jumpsuit – Adam

jumpsuit copyAdam, a local tailor, made his client a suave and chic tailored jumpsuit of brilliant red viscose from Britex Fabrics. Britex Fabrics’ associate, Douglas, assisted Adam. We love the modest plunging neckline and sparklingly bright color. Adam says, “I am an independent designer working in Portland for the last twelve years.  I have a collection of men’s and women’s pieces, as well as custom design that I create to order for a clientele.  I design, pattern draft, fit, cut, and construct every garment myself in my studio.  I am inspired by fabric, color, texture, and finding the perfect fit.  Because my main focus is on fit and construction, my designs have often been called “classic”, although I personally strive to strike a timeless balance between fabric, line, and function.”  This lovely 100% viscose is available is imported from Italy and on Britex Fabrics’ 2nd floor, via email at service@britexfabrics.com, or by phone at 415-392-2910.

I’ve been busy designing jumpsuits this month, including a style with a drawstring waist in embroidered Japanese cotton. For my latest edition of Fashion Travelogue, I selected two beautiful fabrics from the Britex linen category for a bolder jumpsuit look – a colorblock palazzo pant style with short kimono sleeves. For the yoke and necktie, I chose a lightweight linen that is a cross between hunter green and teal green. And for the volume-heavy part of the garment, I selected a midweight linen that is a lovely mix of warm copper and terracotta tones. The width on both of these fabrics is quite generous (58”-59” wide), perfect for wide leg pants. Click here to read more »
