Art Museum Vest (Waistcoat) and Trouser Pattern

This wonderful 'Art Museum Vest and Trouser' paper pattern from Oliver & S is for making a super little waistcoat and trousers.

 

I am a huge fan of Oliver & S patterns and this is why I stock them, the instructions are clear and walk you through every step of the process

 

This classic vest and trousers ensemble is sure to be a hit for a day’s excursion out of the house. Fully lined vest includes welt pockets and a belt at the back. Trousers have a faux fly, elastic-back waistband, front pockets, and back welt pockets.
