The idea from Sharon from :
Preferably pants and a coat
Can be a mix of silk/cotton with Kitenge lining or vice versa
I’ve attached two sample photos to give a rough idea of what I want
For the pants, if they’re made tight at the ankles, that be great!

The story of the full Kitenge suit outfit:
Please let me know what your preferred colors would be, so I can send photos of fabric.
Meanwhile, kindly send the following measurements:
Waist to hip
Trouser length(measured from low waist point)
Full Sleeve length
Nape to Waist
Desired jacket length
I think the red-orange mix would do well. Here are my measurements 👇
Lower waist 34
J. L 30
Front shoulder to waist 18
Sleeve full 25
Trouser length 42
The first one costs 2000/-
The other two are 4000/- each
The orange-black with outside of brown is fine .
Do let me know if that's the one you mean.
As for pricing, these are two different items being tailored into a full suit. cost of labour is a bit higher than the material costs as different processes are being put into the jacket and the pants
Do let me know what you think. Otherwise, I’m ready to start with your go ahead.
Thank you for confirming the order. With receipt of the first payment, I trust that the choice of fabric and overall cost are in good order as I haven't seen your message on the same.
I shall get the agreed upon fabric tomorrow morning, get to working on it in the afternoon and update you on progress in the evening.
Sorry about that. Yes, the photo you reuploaded is what I want. Looking forward to it!
I picked the fabric today and have attached photos of the patterns and pattern pieces of the blazer and pants, I'll be using to construct the outfit.
More progress updates, tomorrow.
Can’t wait to see the progress!
So the good news is, I completed the outfit yesterday as I'd indicated. Sorry for the delay in updating due to a delay in the system.
Attached are photos of the progress in construction and the finished outfit.
Many thanks for the chance to make your idea come alive!
I loooooooove it 😍 send it my way!
Alright, will do.
