"I'm a 33" chest, and I'm really no good at tailoring patterns."

"I daresay it must be a popular item as I also wear it. As a chef I am very used to the double breasted style and I am accustomed to that many buttons. However I definitely consider it not only a bonus, but indeed necessary for all the buttons to…"

"I have that same vest. I got it from the gentleman's emporium as well. :)   While it does take a bit more work to do all the buttons I like that they are all functional."

"How small is "small"?  Our Step-Collar Waistcoats pattern, which has a double-breasted option, goes down to a 38" chest. Click the picture: "

"Does anyone know where I could find a double breasted vest for someone small?  All the one's I've found so far are way to big, whether they be patterns, or already made."

"The double breasted vest pattern is Simplicity 4083 and I got it at Jo-Ann Fabrics.  I'm still trying to decide if I want to alter the pattern to make all the buttons functional or leave half just decorative.  Since I don't have…"

"I could make it cheaper but that's not a very unreasonable price and the vest looks fantastic.  I'm sure you look dashing in it."

"I have been looking for a pattern for a double breasted vest for a long time, would you mind providing the name of the pattern and where you bought it from?"

Andrew John Craven replied to Abraham Friedman's discussion Double Breasted Vests
"I purchased a white double breasted woollen cardigan from H&M a few years back and that has all the buttons functional. To me it is a bit of a nuissance but I persevere as its a fantastic garment in the steampunking wardrobe. Originally in the…"

"I bought it at the Gentleman's Emporium. You can probably make it cheaper yourself, but I've been really happy with the quality of the clothing there.   Canvas Double Breasted Vest - Crimson"

The Duke replied to Abraham Friedman's discussion Double Breasted Vests
"Ideally you should have an equal number of buttons on the left side, inside the waistcoat to fasten the right side of the waistcoat to. These buttons were usually flat buttons regardless of what the ones on the outside of the waistcoat were. The…"

"I have a ten button dubble breasted waistcoat, and it is PAIN to button them all up! Make them fake; no one will know."

"Do you have a picture of it?  What did it cost and where did you buy it?  Spill all the details.  I love making my own stuff but if I can get items easier/cheaper than I can make it I might be tempted."

"I just purchased a double breasted vest where all the buttons are functional. I like it a lot, but fastening all those buttons is going to take some getting used to."
