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.
