first I will say that I am not 100% happy how this project came out. It began with drawing the pattern, especialy the collar becaus of the asymnetry. But I am glad that the waistcoat is finsh and it is wearable. The fabric I foud in my mother’s closet where it has been waiing for about 30 years to become a garment. So it’s realy vintage! It’s a high quality woolen tweed and it was nearly 4 meters. So I have enought fabric left to make a maching paar of pants. A jacket in a red-bown colour is already cut, but I have no time to do it at the moment.
I made the bias binding with the fabric for the jacket. Linning is sewed by hand. Bronze buttons.
