Black Franzi Vest

Pittsburgh, Unit...






I had been wanting a new vest, so I decided to try sewing one. Overall I’m pretty happy with how it came out, although it has a few issues. I changed the shape of the pocket flaps to resemble 18th century ones, and left off the back belt because I don’t really like those for some reason. This was my first time sewing buttonholes, so they aren’t the nicest ones, but I was pretty excited about learning how to do them _

Material Notes

Two kinds of leftover black fabric (some kind of suit weight fabric and some unidentified stuff for lining the front pieces) and basic lining fabric. Silver buttons.

    Love this! And it looks great with the very dramatic white collared shirt. Crisp indeed!

    This turned out very well-it looks nice and crisp. Good work! btw: Are those true pockets, or only decorative flaps?

      Thanks! The flaps are only decorative, which is according to the pattern. I had wanted to make them into real pockets, but they would have been too small to hold much so I didn’t bother.
