Linen Waistcoat

This is a waistcoat I just finished. It's made from the left over linen twill from the trousers in my last post. The waistcoat is single breasted with a shawl collar and removable shell buttons.

Forepart.

The inside of the fore part

The two darts give shape to the chest.

Here I've matched the diagonal ridges on the welt pocket.

Removable shell button.

Back side of the button, the pin holds the button in place.


Finished waistcoat with matching trousers.

The waistcoat back is only one layer of fabric.
