Easy waistcoat

Added Sep 20, 2013

Nedre Vats, Norway






I found this pattern in Burda easy fashion 2/2013. It’s very easy since you can just cut out the pattern and the instruction are made with pictures :) I have used the same printed fabric as my Japanese handbag because I wanted to have something to go together with it, not the other way around:) It’s combinated with the same red jersey I’ve used for the shirt with long sleves. The waistcoat has light grey micro sateng lining and I like it very much! ;)

Material Notes

Printed cotton blends and jersey.
Micro sateng as lining.




Spring, Fall, Winter
Garment Type
Cotton, Blends, Knits/Jersey
