I like making/altering things myself. I can't imagine I'm the only person on here who does, so I thought I'd start a thread where members can post projects.
Personally, I'm getting started on a waistcoat I'm building from the ground up rather than ruining a perfectly good one by altering it.
I'm starting by weaving the broadcloth. Its going to be a 3/1 brown over natural wool twill, a bit on the rustic side at 25tpi, but thats the best I can do with my current equipmentt. The lining is going to be unbleached linen, a bit heavy and double lined for warmth, and there will be two waist pockets with reddish suede trim. I'm thinking some obnoxious red buttons inspired by that insane Italian tweed coat in the non-sartorialist thread.
Thus far I've only started measuring out the warp, but when I get to something interesting there will be pictures.
So what are other people working on? I for one would love to know!
