Misbegotten Waistcoat

A new Pattern out! I made this garment about 18 mons ago. It was accepted then the original company stopped publishing and I went back to submitting it. Tangled recently published it in their Fall 2012 collection. I present to you MISBEGOTTEN WAISTCOAT.


The Aqua one is In Miss Babs Yummy Sport Coventry colourway.
For those who remember Threnody, this design is also inspired by D M Cornish's Monster Blood Tattoo books. Kezziah and I LOVE the character Misbegotten Shrewd. This character is a turning point of the book, (NO SPOILERS) and begins to change thinking and perceptions.

My daughters and I were shopping together and a bit shocked that they needed to buy “Large” garments for their size 4 and 6 frames. The beauty of the shape of women is easily lost on labels, especially when those labels try to force us to fit to their ideal. Although it uses only simple rectangular shapes, the Misbegotten Waistcoat flatters all figure types, no matter if you were blessed with a bodacious booty or an ample bosom.
Using simple shapes and buttoned at the waist, Misbegotten magically slims and accentuates.
