At the time I didn’t have access to the authentic red silk for the back, so I just used a plain red satin as a placeholder.
However, I now have the real thing and I’m quite excited to start using it, the first thing I’ve done is to remake the waistcoat, using the correct fabric on the back.
It’s a subtle change, and frankly will hardly get seen as it will be worn underneath the Crombie coat.
I’ve already got some clients looking forward to getting theirs using my special lining - and it’s almost Christmas!!
