Description

I made this vest from an old Burda issue (3/1994). This is my second one made after this pattern, the first I made a few years ago with some help from my mother with the embroidery (originally the vest has embroidery on it). I just love this pattern! I was a little afraid of the button holes, because I don’t have a special foot for my sewing machine, so I’ve done them by hand.

P.S.: the last picture is with the embroidered vest I made years ago.

    Wonderful vests! I know the problem with buttonholes, machines don’t do them so good like you, when you sew them by hand. I love the embroidery, you did a great job!
