Waistcoat with cape finished!



  I finished the waistcoat yesterday evening, but could not take pictures of it until I ironed very carefully this afternoon. In fact, the fabric is very grateful and didn´t need a lot of steam to take shape, but I can´t spend much time sewing lately and this makes the project takes longer than necessary.





























 Still, I´m very pleased with this waistcoat, the joy I feel when I see a completed garment is like a small explosion inside the stomach, I still marvel at the little miracle of having a piece of cloth and clothing that I get that had in mind when I started to shape a piece of paper with a ruler (I´m rambling again... but you can understand me, right?)
  I added some details insane to the waistcoat, emphasizing the combination of black fabric that I´m going to use for the skirt, I sewed a small buckle on the back.                                                             

 


 The small capelet has all the hem with an insert, because although it´s back is cut straight, side bends and it was impossible to make a hem from the same fabric uncut. A  detail of the front corners, here in Spain, this is called cloth corner, I do not know how to call it in English.






 I wiuld not sew the garment from the inside like a waistcoat, I treated it like a jacket, how to waistcoat is different.

       A strip of fabric is light blue satin adds a touch of elegance to the shell.
 

  Now the buttons are pending which I commanded line they in the haberdashery  with the black cloth of the skirt, I finally decided this option, because the contrasts of black fabric. I like the highlights.
  While I´ll sew the skirt and thinking about the accessories that will go to this suit. 
                                          I wish you a wonderful weekend.

  4. Fantastic! Really beautiful work, well done!
    And the cloth corner, I think in English it's called a 'miterd' corner, pronounced 'my terd'.

    Como perfecciona por dentro como el exterior!
    En mi mente, yo le puedo ver se prepara para salir, mirando en el espejo, tocando abajo la orilla de la capa con una mano enguantada ¡El pensamiento en su mente cuán perfectamente peinado es!
    ¡Espero ver el equipo completo!

  14. Your waistcoat is beautiful. I especially like the way the plaid fabric is on the bias in the cape, and the contrasting collar. I can picture it looking very chic paired with the black skirt you are planning to sew.

  17. I adore this waistcoat and the work is of the highest standard. It's funny, I was thinking about adding cape sleeves to a sleeveless dress pattern I have.
