Waistcoat

To make my waistcoat, I used a block pattern I made for my last waistcoat. There was just enough leftover plaid fabric from the trousers I'm making, to use for the waistcoat. For the actual constructon methods I referred to the books,  "The Art of Garment Making" and "The Victorian Tailor." I learned a lot from these two books. Actually, I'm still learning from them.

The entire waistcoat is hand sewn.

Here are the waistcoat foreparts with the pockets basted in:
