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.
