The Waistcoat Workbook: Historical, Modern, and Genre Drafting of Waistcoats for Men and Women 1837-Present Day provides comprehensive coverage of the design, construction, and role of waistcoats from the reign of Queen Victoria to the present day in the United Kingdom.

The book contains step-by-step instructions on how to draft the garments onto pattern paper from start to finish with drafting tools, including diagrams and detailed instructions on what measurements are required and how to record the information. The book also features:

  • A brief history of waistcoats in European, and particularly British history, highlighting key points in the evolution of the garment
  • A discussion of fabrics that would be suitable to use for the garments and what kind of interlinings and linings are best suited, depending on the main fabric chosen for the front of the garment
  • Information on how to deal with one and two-way fabrics and challenging materials, as well as fabric analysis and pressing techniques
  • Step-by-step instructions to construct genre waistcoats, including cosplay and Steampunk clothing
  • Industry terminology and suppliers and stockists

The Waistcoat Workbook is an excellent resource for professional film and theatre costume makers and tailors, students of costume and fashion design, and makers in cosplay, Steampunk, and re-enactment fields.
