so here comes the tutorial for the vest/waistcoat I was wearing in this styling. It was fast and easy done, at the evening before the day I wanted to wear it. I started with the vest/waistcoat-pattern I used for my last minute costume. And used the fabric I also used for my curtains. I hope you like it.
0.8 m woven fabric
Find how I did the beginning pattern here.
draw the parts on another paper
go 2.5cm inward at the waist from the side-seam and shorten the shoulder seam 5cm
draw new lines on front and back part and cut them
Fold the fabric selvage on selvage
and fold it over again in a right angle to the selvages
pin the parts to the fabric, back part in fold, front part: centre front parallel to the selvages
and cut them.
first pin the side-seams together, of both parts
sew them and then fold the seam allowances open and sew parallel line to the side-seam
now pin both parts with right side inside to each other, shoulder seams stay open and a hole in the seam at the back
and cut the seam allowance in at the curves in the seam, then turn the vest with right side out through the hole you left at the back
pin the shoulder points that need to be sewn together
and pull the front-strap inwards with the back-strap
pull them through the hole again and pin the shoulder seams
and sew them
then pull them back to the right side
now pin all the seams
and sew all around, with that seam also close the hole in the back-part
I hope you like it! Questions as always welcome!
keep sewing and smiling
