Linton Tweed Goes to Buckingham Palace with Client Ruth Samuels

We don’t just feature designers on our blogs but also numerous hobbyist sewers with love working with Linton Tweeds. Client Ruth Samuels crafted this timeless jacket using our Linton fabric and chose the perfect occasion to adorn it!

She wore it to Buckingham Palace where her son collected his Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award. The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is one of the most prestigious awards programs for the youth in the United Kingdom.  It was in 1956 by Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburg and has since expanded to 144 nations.

 She made the jacket in a classic Linton Tweed Fabric in shades of royal blue and white using a Vogue pattern. The braid and fringing was made from the tweed itself which we think really elevates the look and truly makes the jacket stand out. She teamed the jacket with white trousers for a more casual look, showing how versatile a little tweed jacket can be.

The first two photos are taken by the lake in the palace grounds, the next two with her son with the palace as a backdrop. The next one shows them after the event with the jacket worn fully on display and the final photo in front of the gates of the palace before the event.

We love seeing the unique creations our clients make. If you have made anything special using Linton Tweed, send us an image and a blurb about your creation and we could feature your designs next!
