I had been wanting a new vest, so I decided to try sewing one. Overall I’m pretty happy with how it came out, although it has a few issues. I changed the shape of the pocket flaps to resemble 18th century ones, and left off the back belt because I don’t really like those for some reason. This was my first time sewing buttonholes, so they aren’t the nicest ones, but I was pretty excited about learning how to do them _
Two kinds of leftover black fabric (some kind of suit weight fabric and some unidentified stuff for lining the front pieces) and basic lining fabric. Silver buttons.
