Got the idea to sew me a vest with a checkered fabric, the collar is made of faux fur (Persian lamb). The pattern is from an old sewing magazine from the Netherlands.
Having a penchant for authentic accessories, I’m wearing my old Elgin pocket watch (it’s in a small vest pocket).
As you can see on the last picture, I sewed this vest twice – I liked the first one so much, that I made another one of black-white boucle (collar and back fully made of black leather).
Checkered new wool, faux fur, lining, buttons
