Description

Another waistcoat. This time I decided not to use any plage at all. All pieces of interlinning are baste stitched by hand. The lining is inserted by hand and the buttonholes are hand stitched with waxed threads. The pattern matching was quite a challange but it worked out very well.

Material Notes

viscose fabic, wool interlinning, lining

    This looks great. The tartan fabric is a very good choice and the execution is really up to standard!
