I made this Shawl Waistcoat (reversible) in two different woven fabrics. This pattern can also be made in stretch fabrics i.e. jersey. I finished the edges including the armholes with thick bias binding.
This is such an easy pattern as it only consists of one semi-oval pattern placed on double sided fabric and cut on the fold, although I did this using two different fabrics. I made version B (reversible) and omitted the tie-belt. Care needs to be taken on cutting out the armholes. I cut the waistcoat Small and the armholes XS. The armholes are generous so its best to go down a size.
The waistcoat can be left to fall open or closed with a broach. I really like the shawl collar and that this pattern is reversible, that’s two looks in one!
