Quote from: stephaniecan on January 16, 2021, 12:52:23 pmwaistcoat (is) a new object for me and right now I am thinking that I will need a jacket to wear over mine, so I'm thinking about potential patterns to use for that.I love that waistcoat - just my opinion, but I'd wear it all by itself - over a dress or maybe a blouse that would make it standout. I don't think it needs a jacket - my fear would be that a jacket in the same fabric would really dilute the impact of the waistcoat - or even take away the spotlight. The waistcoat's lines are so great, I am not sure I would want to cover it up. As I said, just my opinion. I know you are considering a contrasting collar - though I really also like the version you posted in your thread of the floral - just stunning.
