Couture Blouses—For Weddings and Everyday Wear

Bias Cut Blouse Made from Silk DouppioniWe started making custom made-to-measure blouses for women a couple years ago.Wedding Blouse

Many of our clients weren’t quite sure what to wear with one of our suits and struggled to find something that looked right without being too masculine or boxy.custom silk blouse

Although we do make buttondown dress shirts for guys, we tend not to love the way that dress shirts look on curvier women—they always seem a bit too tight to too loose or even both at the same time.

But on the other hand, we didn’t want to do knit blouses—-there are so many cheap knits out there that clients could always find something if they wanted to go with that (less formal) look.Collared Blouse

Silk Noil BlouseInstead, we began developing “bias cut” pullover blouses.

Fabric that is “bias cut” is cut diagonally across the fabric so that the grain runs at a 45 degree angle.

Raw Silk BlouseThis method of cutting uses much more fabric, but creates a piece that is quite stretchy and drapes beautifully.

These blouses can also be made from the most gorgeous of our woven silks and wools—the result is crisper and much more formal than a knit, but still has all of the great qualities that we associate with knits.

silk noil blouseThe blouse is entirely made from a gorgeous necktie silk with subtle multi-colored stripes.

This piece is pictured in a sleeveless version, but all of our blouses can be made sleeveless, with cap sleeves, short sleeves, 3/4 sleeves, or long sleeves with any style of dress shirt cuff.

il_fullxfull.481757349_tos5As each piece is completely custom, we can mix and match any details to get the perfect look for you.

The second top has a large 1920s style collar and bloused cuffs with gathering.

The result is a feminine take on the dress shirt with an utterly soft and stretchy body and sleeves and a crisp collar.

The third top pictured is also made from a soft silk noil with a surplice front with gorgeous iridescent silk duppioni ruffles.il_fullxfull.411780457_9en9

This piece is one of our sportswear looks and is pictured with a silk tweed pencil skirt that we made—a piece like this is great for business or pleasure.

Pinstripe HoodieThis look also shows our cap sleeve.il_fullxfull.411780659_cu6l

The tuxedo top shown here in blue silk douppioni is another version of our necktie look, but here in a more formal version designed to look great with one our tuxes.il_fullxfull.402898025_fog5

The top has a built in bowtie and cummerbund.   The ties can be tied in a bunch of different ways.

We can get a over a hundred different colors of silk for this look.

The look with the orange and yellow silk burnout velvet is one of our cowl neck styles.  The draped triangular inset looks gorgeous with lots of our suit and vest styles.il_fullxfull.402897671_hxmg

Finally, the last few pics show one of our hoodie tops.

This blouse is cut from a gorgeous superfine wool menswear fabric.

The result is a gorgeous pullover that can be layered into all sorts of gorgeous outfits.

Most of the tops that we sell are part of a larger custom outfit.  But if you are thinking of a top, contact me at superhero@vigilantelabs.com so that we can design something for you

Custom Women’s Vests

Women's Vest for Lesbian WeddingWe make some of the best vests in the world for our menswear shop Denver Bespoke.  

But women wanted them too and would write us wondering if we could also make women’s suits and vests from the same high quality wools and silks that we use to produce our clothing for men.

Each piece is made to order and can be designed to have just the style and look you are going for.

We can sketch up different vest options for you–the neckline, collar style, hem line, pocket style–everything can be changed to match your style and preference.

Every customer has their own unique set and setting where they want the vest to look unique.

We have made many vests and suits for business, some for artists to wear to their openings, from ultra feminine to more masculine, from Victorian-style vests to mod ones, from lesbian weddings to vests for cocktail parties with skirts that match.

The vests in the pictures were all made from the best wool fabrics available.  womens wool pant

The grey vest is made from a beautiful heather grey superfine gabardine with genuine shell buttons.

The lapels and high neckline give it a classic Victorian look.

The navy pinstripe vest is another vest made from a superfine wool menswear fabric.  This vest has subtle purple pinstripes and gorgeous ornate metal buttons.

The third vest is one of our tweed vests.  The fabric is a mini check tweed that is very lightweight with a brushed texture.

We can make pants as well, and our muslin fitting process for getting a perfect fit is one of the best out there.
