My personal preference is to not use fabric paint for this sort of thing... I have been known to resort to embroidery in order to avoid it. I'm pretty good at pattern drafting, so I'm not really worried about that. The issue was more that I'm of the "Let's be historically accurate!" type of crazy, and the more I think about it, the more I think it probably would have been a sweater vest.
I've more or less decided that I don't care, because I have plaid fabric, I don't particularly feel like trying to find a plaid sweater vest or something to alter into one, and I'm not much of a knitter.

Sewing commissions are on hold, but I still do custom pattern-drafting. PM for details.
