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.
