Outlander. Finished brown waistcoat for Jamie

I have finished Jamie’s first waistcoat – the brown one. It’s been sitting on the American Girl mannequin for a couple of weeks already and I wanted to show it that way. Next time I will take photos of it, it will be worn by Jamie!

The waistcoat features 11 hand-sewn long buttonholes, 17 buttons and 18 hand-sewn holes for lacing at the back. The front is made out of brown linen (it creases madly!), while the back and the lining are made from unbleached cotton.

  1. Натуральные ткани все-таки создают такое стойкое ощущение исторической подлинности изделия, что хочется закрыть глаза на сложности их эксплуатации.
    Жилет смотрится нарядно даже на манекене)))

    1. Спасибо большое, Лара! О да, жилет так шикарно смотрится на манекене, что он так до сих пор на нем и сидит!! http://www.swish-swirl.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_yahoo.gif

  2. Greetings!
    Love what you are doing with Poldark!
    I hope you won’t forget Outlander! Would love to have a pattern for Jamie’s waistcoat and a dress for Claire in EID sizes!
    Love your work!

    1. Thank you, Patti. No, I will not forget about Outlander. I’ve just been very very busy in last few months. Now that the kids are back at school, time to get back to work!!

    1. Thank you so much! No, I am afraid, I don’t accept custom orders anymore as I am too busy with making patterns. But I am planning to offer this waistcoat as part of the upcoming 18th century pattern (The George one I already have for playdolls).
