Difficulty: Intermediate

Sizes: XS-4XL


Craft a timeless waistcoat with the Belvedere Waistcoat pattern, the epitome of minimalist elegance, perfect for formal occasions. This design incorporates a gracefully curved back seam and extended darts to ensure a snug, tailored fit that complements your physique. Additionally, it includes a back neckline facing, adding a touch of professionalism to your finished piece.

The instructions and pattern pieces offer you two versatile approaches:

  • Create a meticulously tailored waistcoat, complete with refined welt pockets, a fully canvassed front, and side seam vents for ultimate sophistication.

  • Opt for a swift and uncomplicated waistcoat with a simplified construction, devoid of pockets, making it an ideal project for those seeking a quick sew.

Both waistcoat projects are ideal for using up fabric scraps, allowing you to mix and match materials for a truly unique and personalised garment.

Recommended Fabric

Light to mid weight suiting fabrics such as, wool, linen, or blends for a classic look. Experiment with unconventional materials like upholstery fabrics, corduroy, sturdy knit fabrics, canvas, or denim. You can use the same fabric for the waistcoat lining and back or choose a different lining material for added variety.
