Pirate Head Waistcoat

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”

— Coco Chanel

Shaun’s leather bike suit only has a small pocket which was not sufficient for him to carry all his little stuff, such as keys, wallet, etc. So I told him that I will make him a waistcoat that he can wear underneath with loads of pockets.Smile

Anita had this Burda 3403 pattern for a fancy waistcoat, which she used to make waistcoats and cummerbunds for her wedding. So I used it to make the waistcoat. I just added two pockets on the chest and used an open-ended zipper to close. Also instead of placket pockets, I used zippers so he can close them and secure whatever it is in them.

I had no idea it was so easy to put in zippers to close pockets. I’ll be doing this more often now that I know how to do it.Smile

SNV32955He wanted the waistcoat to match his suit that is red and black and has a ‘Punisher’ skull on the back. Hence the red pirate skull fabric.Smile

I found it easy to make… Only used the pattern instructions to see how the lining is attached to the main fabric. Otherwise, I used my own experience on how each piece goes together.
