Gallery of Garments-
Rae Dollard from Texas made a beautiful variation accented with a copper button she made. The strings and raw edges are a successful finish for these materials.
"I chose to make the vest version of the Coat pattern. I used an old Kantha Quilt, made from old saris, so I didn't need to face the collar as I used the back of the quilt. I hand stitched the bias binding on the edge with Pearl Cotton. It's very comfortable and I'll be able to wear it in Texas winters. It's a great pattern!" Rae

Here is a light-weight jacket linen version in green and black with the optional collar front edge facing included in the pattern. It is the perfect design for shaped accent seaming. The pattern includes a collection of seaming ideas and finishings.
|Diana Beebe's Wool Vest|
Below is a Wool Vest Version by Diana Beebe of Delaware. Hand stenciled fabric trim accents are beautiful on Diana's vest. Her buttons have more interest when layered ontop of the fabric rectangles.
I have been making several variations of the Cacicedo Coat Pattern and love wearing them. Here is a hand-painted vest combining linen and canvas. I topstitched the scraps on top with black thread for added texture.

I'm looking forward to making a collection of wool versions for my winter wardrobe. Diane
