I am trying my hand at tailoring for my boyfriend’s waistcoat for Ascot. It was a bit of an ambitious project for a beginner!
It is based on Vogue pattern 7488 and I have had difficulty getting the point right on the lapel. I did them exactly at right angles to the colar – I drew it on with a ruler before sewing – but they have still come out curled and silly looking; luckily this is only the toile. Any suggestions?
Also, it is too short but it doesn’t have a ‘lengthen here’ part on the pattern. At what point do you think I should lengthen it?
Any help gratefully appreciated!
