Waistcoat with Pockets – Burastyle 07/2010 #101

I like this versatile pattern a lot, and I was inspired by some lovely lace vests on this site. It helped me use up some of the wee vintage lace remnants I had (origin from the 70s). The pieces of lace I had were virtually no bigger than each pattern piece, and I had the exact amount of them in white, and just enough scalloped edging too (used for the hem, I tried to line them up to match smoothly). I also edged the top of the little pockets. This vest was fairly quick to stitch up, although there was lots of mess on the floor haha. I’ll take proper pics when the weather is warmer lol e.g. spring/summer =)
