Double-breasted vest (1897)

Superlative System of Cutting Ladies' Garments (1897)

Double-breasted vest (1897)



I made this one myself. It really is a vest, one that really ends at your waist. Also the shoulder seam is really interesting, it doesn't sit like modern designs, it's more on the back side. I battled a lot with the instructions, I often cannot understand the terms used and their meaning is often taken for granted, so a vague understanding of what measurement is needed can be useful.

  1. could you give some clearer instructions to follow since you've already made one?
