For Ian

Made a waistcoat for Ian. It's blue/black wool, interlined with a soft woven interfacting, Ivory silk dupion back - and two, yes two(!) welt pockets. The pockets were the biggest challenge as I haven't done any for years - come to think of it, I haven't done any tailoring for a l o n g time..... Tried it on this morning and yes, it's too big (sigh). I need to take in the sides by about 5cms - a job for later in the week. Then it's just a case of buttonholes (haven't done them for an age either!) and buttons. Pic to follow once complete, in the meantime here's one showing work in progress...
