Description

I had some suiting material lying around. So I thought I would make another vest. I adjusted my self-drawn pattern a little, but it is basically the same.

The vest is tailored long. I did this for two reasons. First I have a long torso. Second, most of my pants are “low” cut. Most vest patterns are designed for high-waisted trousers that few modern men would ever wear.

Material Notes

Brown wool suiting and brown poly lining.

    Oh this looks great! and good point about most being cut too short – i find that problem with ready to wear a lot!

    nice to see another sewing guy here :-) nice pice of work! allow me a suggestion for an ajustment of the pattern: as far as I can see are the front darts too far to the side. they should be in one line with your nipples and have to end about 2 cm onder them. If you do so you get a better molding of your chest. Maybe you can lower the neckline just a little to provide the wrinkles at the sholder. but as I said, just a suggestion, it’s a very nice waistcoat!!!
