Title: happy velvet waistcoat
Post by: nushybum on April 01, 2007 02:47:56 PM




I'm very pleased with this waistcoat! I made it over the weekend and hope to wear it a lot over the summer. I love the mismatching buttons (only the top one is functional, but the two lower decorative ones have hook and eye fastenings beneath them) and the little black embroideries, as well as the happy red velvet fabric. The waistcoat is made from a pattern (can't remember which one, though it was view A...) and it's lined with a white polycotton.



To read more about the waistcoat (including how it primarily made me look like a morris dancer :o) see this blog entry: http://magic-fingers.blogspot.com/2007/04/on-avoiding-becoming-morris-dancer.html.

I'd love to hear what you think!

P.S. - you may remember me from the librarian dress episode (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=143855.0). Yes, now I'm onto morris dancers *sigh*

That's so beautiful.
I love that you made something so average look so unique and gorgeous. I love the buttons and black embroidery as well. 
It looks great on you, by the way.  :)
