Check this baby out!



Pinstripe wool blend with a bit of stretch.  I started with a Burda magazine pattern for a double breasted waistcoat (here: http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/102010-double-breasted-waistcoat).  With the front closed I felt a little too wrapped up, so I adapted it to my liking.  And added sequins Cheesy 





I was going to get the minimum cut (20cm, I think) of black sequined fabric, which was $50/m, and applique pieces onto the collar, etc.  My pragmatic side got the better of me and I bought 6m of sequin trim - you know, the stuff that's just a line of sequins on string.  I found that sewing it in a cornelli pattern and only stitching down every 3rd or 4th sequin crushed them up nicely.  It looks exactly the same as the pricey fabric and was fun to sew. I don't think I would like to do huge panels of it though!



The button and loop was a last minute addition.  I saw the waistcoat on my dress form and thought... it's not done yet.
