    Super pattern and instructions.

    I loved making the Brooklyn waistcoat. Pockets were a bit scary but with Marina’s videos, I did it! So proud of what I achieved. I made a couple for my son and he loves them too!

    I made this waistcoat for my grandson using a faux leather fabric. He loved it and said he felt like a real rock star when he wore it. With Marina’s sew along instructions it was easy to overcome the scary bits (like those pockets) but if you followed Marina’s instructions you can easily get a very professional looking garment. This pattern will be used over and over again by me, especially for two of my relatives who are brothers and they like to look very smart each Sunday when the go to Church in matching outfits.
