Regency Waistcoat

I constructed this waistcoat for a a friend of mine. The same one who ordered these shirts. The green striped silk came from Mill End in Portland, and the lining is a cotton/linen blend from Fabric Depot in Portland. The pattern was the Men's 1812 waistcoat from Rocking Horse Farm. It was relatively easy to put together, although a few of the seams did not align properly. I had to fudge them. There are no buttons in these pictures because my friend is going to do them all by hand for that perfect period look.

That looks great! I have been eyeing that fabric for a while. It's nice to see it made up :-)
