Waistcoat for Lord Bath

Construction

In my GCSE Textile class we learnt how to construct a simple waistcoat and I was ‘commissioned’ by my brother to make him one…

My brother's individual waistcoat (he came with me to picket he colours and buttons)

No sooner had I done so, my stepdad suggested that I create one for Lord Bath (he was working on ‘Animal Farm’ at this point for the BBC, so got to know him well) – I thought this was a lovely, if not daunting idea and agreed.

And here is the final outcome…

I think if I did it again I would not use felt-like material as the main fabric as I imagine it might be hot to wear but I really like the embroidery and the contrasting collar fabric!
