Waistcoats

Waistcoats are wonderful garments to wear and such a versatile addition to any wardrobe. Short or long fitted or straight, with or without collars, they can be used for any occasion and are a great favourite of mine.  Two of the waistcoats shown here have front panels woven in beautiful Jaquard ribbons. Two more are woven using the fabric and ribbon technique with the addition of a 6mm gold lame ribbon. The Lapels of the cream waistcoat are woven using the 6mm wide gold Lame ribbon.

The making up instructions given in my book are not readily available on the market today, but the techniques I have shared with you in my book are a manufacturing method used for accuracy and speed that you will find easy to follow. All the panels have been woven in the plain weave.
