The inspiration for this waistcoat was this drawing by Fyodor Pavlov. (Warning! He draws some NSFW stuff.)
I've had a striped fabric just line the one in the drawing in my stash for several years, and thought a waistcoat in it would be lovely.
|By a happy coincidence, this drawing has hair very similar to mine!|
I made the piping with a thin cotton cord I found on a spool in the storage room.
|Pocket welts before being sewn in.|
I basted a piece of hair canvas interfacing in each of these before I added them to the waistcoat.
Burnley & Trowbridge bone button molds. I got the 3/8 inch ones, and they're so cute! So very tiny! Any smaller and they'd have been impossible to cover neatly.
|The obnoxious lining.|
Maybe it's because of my scootching it over a bit so the first two stripes on the collar would line up with the neckhole stripes better...
