This loose waistcoat is a made from fine light weight wool that was woven in Yorkshire. Yes a  locally made U.K. fabric.

Not only that, I didn’t pay a fortune for it.

I bought it from Jacks, a small stall on  Leeds Kirkgate Market. Right at the back in the new part.They sell end of line remnants of Yorkshire made wooden fabric.  For very reasonable amounts. Anything from £5.00 to £12.00 a meter.

 It is loosely based on the Mc Calls M6996 Misses’ Jackets & Belt pattern. Rather too loosely. I made it so big I had to put some bust tucks in. But I like to think it gives it a rather Downton Abbey look?

It is worn here with my gifted blue T shirt and gifted stripy skirt over yoga leggings
