My Dad is fondly known as 'the Old Folk', and when he saw Mr. SDSC's waistcoats, he wanted one for himself. As you may well know - once I have a pattern that works, I like to churn out a number of versions. This does not relate just to me, but also to Mr. SDSC - and now the Old Folk.
Fortunately, the waistcoat pattern fitted him well, so I did not have to make any changes. I used a lovely, soft, brushed wool suiting in a dark charcoal colour - left over from some trousers I made myself quite some time ago.
He has quite the sense of humour, so I thought that I would use a bright colour for the lining. And being a lifelong Liverpool FC fan, the lining had to be red. I dug around in my linings and found a length from my Mum's collection. She would have bought this to line a skirt - she used to make lots of perfectly fitted pencil skirts, usually in a tartan fabric (well, she was Scottish!), so I knew that the Old Folk would get a kick out of wearing some of her fabric.
So without further ado - I give you the Old Folk - posing for all he is worth on the deck, with the snow falling, as it was the only place with semi-decent light:
Suits you Sir, suits you!
I lined the pockets with Batman fabric again, and that is about it. One happy Old Folk and you can't argue with that!
