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?

Fab on photo.... but....

Looked good on photos! And pdf files were pretty. Having said that, I first thought a file with A4 for printing was missing, and it took a while to figure out how to configure print settings to achieve a correctly scaled pattern printout.

Having made a calico mockup, I realised the following: 1) seam allowances are included... this is not mentioned in the instructions.... 2) The pattern may be a good fit for a stocky/square person, but requires quite a bit of meticulous reenginering to fit an individual with a waist that is narrower than hips and shoulders. Ended up with 3 darts in the back and adjusted sides to achieve a good fit rather than a floppy baggy thing.

The jury is still out on the armhole curve/detail at the back. We'll see if it is achievable in satin shortly. If not, I'll simply drop it and make a traditional back.
Which means I may well end up with a product that is totally different to the waistcoat in the pattern, except from the shoulder angle, which did not have to be altered. So you get one star for good shoulder angle.
