Waistcoat

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I can't take any credit for the beautiful way this has been made, right down to the fabric-covered buttons - my input was merely the patchwork and quilting. Jacqueline is a very experienced and highly skilled tailoress and she has made a wonderful job of the waistcoat. I can't wait to see Derek's face when he receives it on Christmas morning! I'll have to add a picture of him modelling it! All credit to clever Jacqueline!
