Hi Nick, I tried my best. I'm no tailor (that's evident), I'm doing this mostly because the front of the waistcoat is too nice to just waste. But my parents say it's not worth the while to get a new backing professionally made for it by a proper tailor; it's be too expensive or something. So I'm going the cheap way and making a homemade one myself. If it's even half-decent, I'll be satisfied with a job well-done.
