I have been eyeing the clothes from Puttin’ on the Ritz for a while. I think they look lovely and the little I have found about their clothes has been positive. As I understand it they are quite new. They have a selection of women’s clothes from the 30’s and 40’s and a small selection for men as well. You don’t order clothes in size but provide your measurements instead. I really like that as I always have problems with fit in the upper area of my body- if it fits over my chest; it sags over my narrow back. So I’m very tempted to order the Waiting at the Station Coat.
I have been looking for brown and grey tweed for my autumn coat but haven’t found any fabric I like. This coat isn’t in tweed, but there are two grey fabric options and a coat that is just grey would suit the overall colour scheme too so I think I’m going to buy this coat instead of making one. The price is £275, which is within my budget for a coat. It may not be as warm as a Swedish winter calls for, but I need a coat for “middle”
I’m also contemplating the Spying for the Allies skirt- it has such a neat back!
I really like their trousers too, but I don’t dare to buy those. I’m currently working on a toile for trousers and I need to adjust the fit so much, even if the patterns in my size that I realized that even if I can send some measurements to Puttin’ on the Ritz, they are not enough to ensure that the trousers would fit. But I may order a blouse…
