Because my first grey waistcoat is looking a little tired, and I want more practice with shawl collars, I decided to make myself another grey waistcoat.
Which I sewed the last button onto yesterday! Both the lining….
….and the pocket linings are the same fabric – I just managed to get these out of the scraps I had left!
I put cotton tape along the roll line of the collar, so that it’s stable along the bias edge.
I also adjusted my pattern to try and get the collar sitting closer to my neck, which absolutely worked – I’m super happy with where it’s sitting now.
Plain grey like this goes with all colours and patterns, so I’m super excited to wear this with everything next winter. I might get a week or two of wear out of it this year before it gets really warm here. I am going to milk every second of that time, because I adore this waistcoat.
Now, what to make next? Hmmm….
Anyways, see ya!
