Description

A Gentleman’s evening waistcoat for wearing with a tailcoat to white tie events. This was based on a McCalls pattern, number 5108, published in 1990.

This is a Jolly Dicey project, constructed by myself and my partner Su.

Material Notes

The front is made from herringbone weave raw silk suiting. The lining is a silk and rayon mix twill. Light weight fusible cotton interfacing was used for the front, collar and pocket welts.

      Thank you. We had fun doing this. Hand covered buttons and hand worked buttonholes. :)
