A softly structured waistcoat with a boxy fit, two welt pockets and a simple stitched belt at the back. Layer up in the winter or wear on its own in the summer in a tumbled linen.

All seam allowances are 1.5cm unless otherwise stated.

Skill level - intermediate. (Leaving the welt pockets off would make it an advanced beginner make)

Fabric suggestions - 5-8oz linen, 5-10oz denim, light - medium weight corduroy, wool, wool blends, cotton canvas or twill. For the lining: lightweight wovens such as calico, cotton lawn, cotton, cotton blends, Tencel/linen (when choosing your cloth consider that the lining fabric may be visible).

Paper vs PDF

If you order a paper copy you will be sent a printed version of our pattern. If you select PDF you are purchasing a digital file. You will be able to download your digital files five times. We recommend that you save your files so that you have them forever. PDF's will include a tiled, an A0 copy shop file and your instructions. The tiled file can be used on any home printer, and is compatible with both A4 and US letter paper. You just need to print out the sheets and stick them together following the guide. Alternatively you can send off the copy shop file to be printed full size; we can usually recommend someone in your area. If you are in the UK we would recommend either The Fold Line or Net Printer. The instructions can either be printed at home or simply follow along on your computer or phone.
