So, I found a waistcoat at my local thrift store a few weeks ago, and loved it so much I decided to make my own waistcoat that was even better. Last Friday, I sewed on the last button, and today, it got photographed!
Both the pockets on the front work, as you would probably expect from me at this point. They don’t fit a phone, but smaller items fit in them quite nicely.
It’s lined with scraps left over from my Captain Marvel pants, because I love having a contrasting lining!
I also hand-bound the buttonholes, which is a technique I’m slowly getting better at.
To go in one of the pockets, I bought myself a pocket-watch a few weeks ago, which completes the whole ‘look’!
Next time, I’d make it a size smaller, because this has been taken in quite a bit at the sides and back. In the meantime, however, I shall be wearing it as much as possible! It might be my new favourite piece of clothing….
Anyways, see ya!
