Here are the latest set of sewing pictures from making my waistcoat. There are still a couple finishing touches that I may work on later, if I do, I'll post them at that time.
|Notice the buttonholes for the collar, I didn't have time before my event to sew on the buttons, so I sewed the top of the waistcoat shut. I'll eventually revisit the topic to add buttons|
|To determine where I was going to place the button holes, I made a guide out of black thread that I loosely stitched into place.|
|Using the guide, I sewed the buttonholes.|
|I then cut out the buttonholes using a seam ripper and my scissors. The tricky part with this step was removing the black thread... I had to use my finger nails and the seam ripper to pull the pieces out of the stitching.|
|Next, I worked on the back closure... I decided to try using a ribbon... it seems to have worked decently well.|
