Rotterdam, Neth...






I used my self drawn pattern for a waistcoat. I made some alterations by the colar and the seem. Added dubble welt pockets with a clap that is shaped like the seem. Handmake buttonholes.

    I’ve been trying to find a waistcoat pattern with full lapels (not just attached at the shoulders rather than going round the neck). Any suggestions?

    GREAT job, btw!!!

      thank you for the compliments!

      I am sorry, I have never seen a ready made patter with full lapels/collar. That’s the reason that I constructed my own pattern. You can try to the following: measure the distance from centre back to the shoulder. Add it to the lapel pattern in a straight line. Draw a 90 degree angle to the right and draw a soft curve to the lapel point. It needs some ironing work, too, to bring the collar in form.
      Good luck
