I hope you are all having a good week :)
My waistcoat that I was making in college is now all complete! As I mentioned a post or so ago, for our first project we had to make a men's waistcoat in any style we wanted, it also had to be decorated in some way.
Here was my design, which was inspired by comic book villains and gangsters:
The front sections interlock.
And then here is the back, my decoration was inspired by the glamorous girlfriends gangsters and villains often seem to have in the movies :p:
And now, after a few weeks work, here is my finished waistcoat, front and back:
Then here are some close ups/different angles:My machine and hand appliquéd hand motifs (the little xxx are hand embroidered):
Satin stitch hand embroidered kiss :):
It was hard to get the lapels so sharp (and the pocket flap points too!):
It was a fun and challenging project. I learnt so much as this was my first ever piece of menswear. I am really proud of the result though :-) please do leave me any comments below- I would love to know what you think.
See you all again soon, when I will be announcing a special giveaway........!
