Fabric Inspiration for Waistcoat:


Alright now  it's time to choose the fabrics that will bring our creation to life.
For the outer layer of your waistcoat, we've got a palette of possibilities. Think 5-8oz linen for that effortlessly elegant look. If denim is more your style, opt for 5-10oz denim – it's all about that denim-on-denim chic! For a touch of texture, light to medium weight corduroy adds an interesting twist. And let's not forget the timeless charm of wool and wool blends. Lastly, cotton canvas or twill brings a hint of sophistication to your creation.

When it comes to the lining, lightweight wovens are your go-to companions. Imagine the breezy comfort of calico and the softness of cotton lawn enveloping you. Classic cotton and cotton blends give you endless possibilities. And if you're up for something unique, consider tencel/linen for that touch of luxury.

Buttons for Sewing:

Oh, the buttons! Those tiny embellishments that can transform a garment from simple to simply stunning. So let's talk about the magical buttons you'll need to bring your waistcoat to life.


Grab your imagination and let's choose 3 fabulous buttons that resonate with your style. Whether they're classic, quirky, or a perfect blend of both, these buttons will add that extra flair to your creation.

Now, let's talk tools. A sewing machine with buttonhole capabilities is your best friend for creating those neat and tidy closures. Equip yourself with a trusty buttonhole sewing foot – I personally recommend #3A for a seamless experience. It's like giving your sewing machine a magic wand!

As for the threads, make sure you have a selection that perfectly matches your chosen fabric. We want those buttonholes to blend seamlessly into your masterpiece. And for any finishing touche
