For Hello, Dolly! I constructed Horace's vest. I first created a muslin mock up for fittings and then created a printed vest with a silk lining for the back. It had a belt piece on the back so it could be adjusted. I covered buttons with a complimenting red velvet, however, they were just for show as the vest had snap closures for speed.
