Waistcoat Making,
The Savile Row Style

Even if you are a beginner, making a waistcoat in two weeks is possible. 


It might not be great; a little rushed in places but you'll wear it with pride.

If you have good machine sewing skills, you will find it a lot of easier but nothing about making a waistcoat is easy.  If your hand-sewing skills are little to none, it's a great way to learn.

 

You will be expected to put in at least two hours of your own time each evening after classes
