I made this waistcoat out of fine wool fabric. The pattern is selfdrawn. I have still difficulties to draw the collar, but I managed to do it. Again, I did a lot of hand sewing. The interfacing is wool canvas sewed by hand. The linning is put into by hand and the button holes are handmade, too. I used a counter button to reduce the presure on the fabric. I am happy with the result :-)
