Yep, the vest has been completed, now Hubby has a shirt, a vest and a pair of shoes for his 1860's clothing. He has decided to order a pair of trousers, and I am SO GLAD!
Both garments have been a challenge, but the vest was a set-by-set process with lots of reading of the direction and looking at the illustrations on the pattern instructions. It has three pockets and I've never sewn anything with pockets, so that was certainly a learning experience.
A picture, or two, are worth a thousand words. Hubby's head was cut off on purpose, he didn't want his hair showing, because his hair was not in order. Oh, the buckle on the back is some type of authentic type buckle that was special order.
