Pattern Review - McCalls 5186

I just love this waistcoat that Georgia made in Tessuti's 100% Cotton Velvet 'Black Bonnie Stripe'. The pattern used is McCalls 5186 - view D - and she didn't alter the pattern at all!

The little touches added were some lovely glass buttons in black/gold, contrasting lining in Tessuti's Italian silk satin 'Bronze Pois' and crushed velvet trim ribbon in black was used for the back ties.

Check out this little write up about Modern Vests from Instyle and take note of Kate Bosworth's 'Gucci' cute.



  1. Now that is one cute vest.

  2. That vest is absolutely lovely!! I have been hooked on vests lately. I just made my first and i love it. I have this pattern too and not that I have seen this one guess what vest is next on my list

  3. Gorgeous - I truly envy her wardrobe!

  4. Fabulous vest! I love the back!

  5. SO LOVELY! And vests are so in right now. Was it difficult to make I wonder? In any case, absolutely fabulous!
