Sew La Di Da - Paper Sewing Pattern - Mr London Waistcoat
Sew La Di Da Vintage style sewing patterns are created in the UK by designer Caroline Smith.
Mr London is a stylish 1930s inspired waistcoat and our first pattern for the male home-couture enthusiast! Cut to give a slimming silhouette, with faux pockets, button fastenings, tabs and contrasting trim at the back.
Mr London is a perfect day-to-day waistcoat that’ll smarten up any outfit. Inspired by a 1930s pattern, and updated to fit modern figures and tastes. Mr London enjoys riverside strolls in cottons, tweeds, and woollen fabrics, but is also partial to a brandy or two at the club in velvet or silk. The fabric used for the front of the waistcoat extends slightly round the shoulders to act as a contrasting trim, and looks particularly effective when teamed with vintage style or liberty print fabrics. The faux pockets streamline the front and are easy for novice sewists, but if you are up for the challenge and confident that they won’t get stuffed full of used handkerchiefs, why not make them into real pockets?
