Sarah’s Androgynous Bespoke Ladies Waistcoat

Androgynous Bespoke Ladies Waistcoat

Sarah came to me needing an androgynous bespoke ladies waistcoat she could wear to work. One that would mix and match well most of her wardrobe. We chose a subtle grey 11/12oz wool from H. Lesser.

As purple is her favorite colour, I highlighted the bespoke waistcoat pockets with a purple and pink lining stripe as well as on the back of the waistcoat. I cut two darts in the front to give shape and flatter her hourglass figure without making the style too girly.

Sarah often wears a fob watch so I made sure that the placement of her pockets and button holes lined up nicely to show off her fob chain. As usual, the waistcoat was hand finished throughout with bar tacks on the side vents and buttonholes.
