Buy the Men’s Belvedere Waistcoat sewing pattern from Thread Theory. Sew a timeless waistcoat with the Belvedere Waistcoat pattern! It’s the perfect minimalist piece to wear to formal events. This design features a curved back seam and long darts to fit the garment close to the body. It includes a back neckline facing for a high-end professional finish.

The instructions and pattern pieces provide for two approaches:

1. Create a tailored waistcoat complete with welt pockets, a fully canvased front and side seam vents.

2. Sew a quick and easy waistcoat with no pockets and simplified construction techniques.

Both waistcoat projects are great scrap busters since it is easy to mix and match fabrics.

This sewing pattern is available to buy in the following formats:

– PAPER (next working day dispatch on orders and FREE UK delivery over £50)

– PDF (available to download immediately after purchase). What is a PDF?

Suggested fabrics: Light to medium weight suiting fabrics, including wool, linen or blends. You can also experiment with unconventional fabrics such as upholstery fabrics, corduroy, sturdy knit fabrics, canvas or denim. The same fabric can be used for the waistcoat lining and back, or lining material can be used.

Fabric requirements:

115 cm (45″) wide fabric: Main fabric, 0.7 – 0.8 m (0.8 – 0.9 yd) // Lining, 2.0 m (2.2 yd).

150 cm (60″) wide fabric: Main fabric, 0.7 m (0.8 yd) // Lining, 1.3 m (1.4 yd).
