Red wine waistcoat- Outfit ideas

These are the good qualities of my vest, which you should consider when you want to invest in something new: -a dominant color -a color which is often reflected in your wardrobe (for example I have many printed clothes with burgundy and red-ish details so this vest ties them together very well) -something you can layer under and over something as well -a nicely tailored piece which gives you shape -timeless, not trendy. I can imagine this vest in a magazine from the 50s and the 90s too for example in an office. Maybe it’s not the most modern thing but it will never be old fashioned, I can assure you.

Sewing the red wine waistcoat

It was a ridiculously cheap second-hand blazer which I instantly imagined incorporating in some interesting outfits (see them here). Sewing is in some ways art, some ways math, geometry and architecture.
