I am Black Velvet and I am made from well loved jeans, a gorgeous bit of donated black velvet fabric, a splash of herringbone and a lovely soft multi coloured boho duvet. 


I love making these zero waste reversible waistcoats.  Sitting with all my remnants, donated fabrics and off cuts to create them is like putting a puzzle together.  Absolutely love the combination of black velvet, denim and the herringbone.  Reverse it and you've got a funky colourful duvet waistcoat.   


I'm still working on my revsersible skills so Black Velvet's price reflects some slight reversible imperfections.  Combining different textiles can be fiddly :).  


Size 2 (UK2-UK12)

Black Velvet Reversible Waistcoat

  • All Zero Waste Reversible Waistcoats are just like you, one of a kind.


    Depending on how you'd like me to fit will dictate which size is best for you.  Size 1 (UK6-Uk10) Size 2(UK8-UK12) Size 3 (UK10- UK14) Size 4 (UK14-UK18)


    The waistcoats do not have closures and sit high but are not cropped.  They look great with highwaisted trousers!


    Always happy to work with you to make a waistcoat just for you if you have an old duvet or tablecloth that you like the pattern of or maybe you've got some fabric that you haven't used.


    These waistcoats are made from denim, cotton, handwoven textiles, tweed, loads of different types of fabric.  For that reason, I'd say wash me less and when you do give me a cold wash and pop me out on the line. Tweed is a wool-based product and this is generally not a good idea to put in the washing machine. Wool clothing can shrink during a wash, as the speed and heat pumped through water alters the material. As well as this, tumble drying is also not a good idea for similar reasons.
