Waistcoat Mutation

The silver zebra Burda 7799 waistcoat is stalled.

However a waistcoat had to be made and the result is a mutation between Burda 7799 and Lincraft 1063.

I used the body of Lincraft 1063 and the collar and welt pockets of Burda 7799. The two front pieces are a lightweight woven fabric with iron on interfacing to give more body, the back and lining is Dancetime satin - the back is the matt side.

So a marvellous slinky feel and a completed waistcoat. Smiles all round.
