“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”
— Coco Chanel
Shaun’s leather bike suit only has a small pocket not sufficient for him to carry all his little stuff, such as keys, wallet, etc. So I told him that i will make him a waistcoat that he can wear underneath with load of pockets .
Anita had this Burda 3403 pattern for fancy waistcoat, which she used to make waistcoats and cummerbunds for her wedding. So I used it to make the waistcoat. I just added two pockets on the chest and used an open ended zipper to close. Also instead of placket pockets I used zippers so he can close them and secure whatever it is in them.
I has no idea it was so easy to put in zippers to close pockets. I’ll be doing this more often now that I know hoe do do it .
I found it easy to make.. Only used the pattern instructions to see how the lining is attached to ne main fabric. Otherwise i used my own experience on how each piece goes together.
