But then - a few weeks ago - Margaret from St Louis got in touch with me through Ravelry to ask if I'd found a pattern for the waistcoat as she loved it as well.
I revisited my blog post from last April and have to admit falling in love with the waistcoat all over again. So this time I determined to make it - and guess what I have!
Here are some close up photos.
I'm just finishing typing up the pattern and I need some good photos of it - so I should be able to post the pattern in the next few days.
