Nice pattern

I'm still working on it, because I decided to add lapels and a collar, but the muslin fit well (I already added a 2 inch FBA because I always need one anyway, but hadn't done one on princess seams before. Would have loved some different cup options...). It's a stylish little pattern and I love the look of it so far. I am tempted to turn the pockets into real welt pockets (tiny ones for a watch...)

Two so far ...

I really love this pattern - it's a pleasure to sew and it turns out that waistcoats go with so many things and cover my 62-year-old midriff very comfortably :)
So far I've made two from offcuts of fairly thick upholstery wool felt bought from a social enterprise on eBay. For the purple one I didn't have quite enough fabric so made the facings of thinner stripey cotton and, though it's a bit less warm, it sits slightly closer to the body and feels less stiff. I already have plans to make another one for the spring out of thinner wool suiting in various blues and my husband is hinting strongly that he would like one too, so it looks like I'll be getting the Pike pattern as well in the near future!


Excellent pattern

Step by step instructions make it achievable

While there is lots of pieces, keeping them together with the pattern piece makes it easier to follow along.
I found the curves the hardest part, however that comes with practice. Loved the clever (but fiddly) way the bottom seam is done.
Was able to get done for a wedding and made a very happy crew
