Fabric: Poly suiting, polysilk lining
Pattern: McCalls 6149
Year: Well this was inspired by the eighth doctor (doctor who) waistcoat. Which I think is 1870's. But feminised. I think it actually has a 1930's feel to it.
Notions: 3 buttons, interfacing
How historically accurate is it? weeeelllll....as its based on a tv costume and I haven't pinned the year down I'll leave it up to you to decide.
Hours to complete: lost count but about 2 weeks.
First worn: to test the fit yesterday
Total cost: approx £12
|Finished waistcoat- you can see I added my tardis key to my pocketwatch chain|
