    The waistcoat is great – thanks for the tip about using furnishing fabrics. I often see remnants that I like but have been worried about using them for making clothes. I will be rethinking from now on.

      Just remember that furnishing fabric like this is NOT WASHABLE !

    Really nice work and choices. The colors and buttons remind me of St. John clothing.

      Thank you for the kind comments. I still can’s decide if the background is black ( I used that colour of thread ) or very dark brown — looks great with brown anyway. Buttons however are black and gold !!

      I often choose furnishing fabrics especially for men’s waistcoats – - I made my wedding suit from it too , many years ago.
