A “design-your-own-suit” application, built with CodeIgniter, jQuery and a smile on my face.
A couple of years ago I was tasked with designing and building a web application for a new on-line tailoring business: The Suit Makers. However, the owner got a job offer he couldn’t refuse and left the project mid-way.
His business partner contacted me a year later and we decided to revive the abandoned code and use it for his family’s tailoring business: Monte Carlo Tailors.
The application is built with CodeIgniter & jQuery. The main features are:
- A “design” section. Design a suit, shirt or trousers.
- A blog.
- A simple e-commerce shop.
- A back-end for managing the orders, fabrics, blog posts, etc.
There’s a flat shipping rate & all payments go through PayPal, so the e-commerce part is fairly simple.
