Port Macquarie, ...
I made this using BurdaStyle 03/2012 #137 – in the magazine but not on the BurdaStyle website. It’s referred to as a gardening vest in the magazine but it’s perfect for a fishing vest!
I omitted the wadding as it is hot where we live in summer. I also used lots of trim, including measuring tape trim on the inside of the vest, rose braid to the outside, fish-scale buttons to the pockets (with snap closures underneath).
My daughter is delighted!
