A beige-gray linen waistcoat (or vest), my approximation of what Jane Austen's gentlemen characters wore. It is fully lined. The back is made of blue pinstriped lining fabric, and the wide lapels feature a blue-and-white-striped cotton. The stand-up collar is stiffened with horsehair interfacing. The vest is finished with extreme attention to detail: buttons covered in the same linen, buttonholes hand-sewn with matching blue embroidery thread, one pocket with blue-and-white-striped piping, and one with a linen flap.

Named for William Wilberforce (1759–1833), a politician and philanthropist who was a leader of the movement to abolish the British slave trade.
