Would you ever try to add a separate waistcoat to a pinstriped suit?
Thanks for your help!
Yes, it is okay and the key for pulling it off is color contrast, between the waistcoat and the suit.
Since it is a suit, I would go with a linen waistcoat in pastel color, cream being my favorite.

Agreed. And, Gabriel, the odd (not speaking about the different fabric, but the odd design and cloth) waistcoat should not be donned in formal settings.
