  • 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
