Waistcoat with embroidery

Added Mar 25, 2014

by Ellen Hatteland

Nedre Vats, Norway






I love to wear waistcoat and even on a dress I think it’s nice. I wanted to make this special and made embroidery on the one side. I have used overlock for the seams and I wanted seams to show as decoration. The small pockets are decoration as well, and the collar is a little special because it is just in front (not back). It’s based on pattern #2D Burda Easy Fashion 2008. The fabric is a polyester blend and similar to sports stretch and I have used satin for lining.

Material Notes

Poly blend and satin.




Garment Type
Preppy, Casual
Polyester, Satin

    It looks really good and nicely done. Love the embroidery details, the fabric and color. I want to make a waistcoat for a long time, I have the pattern on hand and already chosen the fabric but still waiting on the line to make it :) Have a lovely weekend :-)

    I just love the different color topstitching and embroidery. I don’t usually think about these kinds of finishing touches, so thank you for the inspiration.

    Embroidery makes the vest exclusive and we can surely say – it’s Ellen’s brand :-)
