I made this vest for christmas last year for my boyfriend. It was actually the first Burdastyle pattern I’ve used, quite an adventure on itself! I am very happy with the result. The instructions were not always clear but with a little help from the Internet I figured out. I used a different method to put in the lining; I put it in the same way you line a sleeveless dress (http://youtu.be/WBc73i9uXro).
The only problem with the vest are the buttonholes, they are a little off.. But luckily my boyfriend doesn’t bother. I also made a matching bowtie from the lining, so this would be perfect for christmas! He’s not so fond of it though.
