Here is how my waistcoat, that is based on a bodice block from 1912, turned out. And a lot of description on the final sewing stages.
Historical sewing and classic tailoring are close relatives. So, I decided to combine a block from 1912 with classic tailoring methods to make a waistcoat.
I made a ruffled skirt with Ottobre design 1/2011 15. Cocos. I used the same Fabriking bamboo French terry that I used to make a jacket for my son.
This is my B5813 hack with wide v-neckline, button-up closure and lace trim details. On my second use of this pattern I also made changes to the fit.
