      thanks for your compliments, you make my day today :-)
      handmade buttonholes take a lot of time but they are much nicer than by machine ( after endless houres of practicing )
      The Netherlands are a kind of fabric heaven :-) this waistcoat kosted less than 15 euro’s

      I am not kidding about the fabric, on the market you often pay a quarter of the price than in a store. And sometine they realy don’t know what they are selling. Good for the people like us :-))

      I’m going to Southeast Asia next month, people say they have great fabrics there. I can’t wait to get my hands on some Thai silk!

    Beautifully made. I loved your attention on the details of waistcoat. I’ve been planning to do a waistcoat and a skirt ensemble, got all the notions sorted out. Now :-) I am admiring your waistcoat… Well done!

    Absolutely adore this! Love the buttons. Are you wearing it with a nice, crisp white shirt and blue jeans? ;-)

    Looks very well made! I love vests too but havent got any. In the stores are boring and i havent found any good patterns too. Brown colour is lovely!
