Well, in a few hours from now we’ll know one way or another. If England is through to the finals. Do you have your beer in the fridge and sewing machine wheeled in front of the telly?
Whatever the outcome, the team’s manager, Gareth Southgate has proved himself heroic. The world’s in love with his humble yet powerful leadership – and his waistcoats!
If this has inspired you to sew a waistcoat, the 70s were the waistcoat decade. The above is a Woman’s Realm pattern. It’s not dated, but by those haircuts I’m going with 1970s. Agreed?
Of course, we can go much farther back than that – take this Vogue 1950s pattern for a man’s waistcoat. How debonair.
I shan’t claim that all waistcoat patterns shall have you brimming with inspiration. Shudder…

And again, going by the haircuts, I’m guessing the below Vogue pattern is classic 1980s?
I wonder if there shall be a new sewing pattern release coming soon?
Whatever you’re doing this evening, I hope you have fun!
