Take a look at my latest DIY project; tartan double breasted waistcoat…
I’m so DAMN EXCITED about my tartan double breasted waistcoat my girl Mimi is going to have to hear me talk about it for the next few weeks LOL!!
I had the tartan pants for years that I purchased from a vintage store and wanted the vest in the same print because I love tartan so much. I’m having so much fun creating pieces that actually look good lol and it keeps me confident every time I start a new project. I modified the Simplicity Pattern 4762 a little by changing the shape of the front, as well as, adding working whelp pockets.
