I am looking for some help again. I have been working on a waistcoat for my teenager who wanted it to return to 6th form.
I finished the waistcoat this morning to find that it does not do up. The waistcoat picture was in silk type fabric and I used a medium weight suiting for the front.
I have thinned out the back seams on back and lining to give a small amount of extra and it is currently edge to edge.
Suggestions to gain the extra needed so that the buttons can close if desired???
I am thinking of adding some material to the sides but not sure how much, how it will affect the sleeve hole etc etc. This is beyond my skill level. Help required.
