Dad's waistcoat - The Saga continues

The short row shoulders worked and the top seams are bound with a fairly neat 3 needle bind off done on the inside.

The shoulders are narrower than I'd planned, the weight of the garment is stretching the knitting downwards thus narrowing my gauge. I'm learning quite alot with this project. I compensated by making the ribbing around the armholes wider using Mr G as my model. I've finished both arm ribbings. All that's left is deciding on button placement and knitting the button and neck band. I'll be so happy to finish this.
