I had some random scraps of unwanted fabric from a slipcover my aunt made, and was in the mood for making a vest! The pattern is perfect for that kind of thing, because the pieces are small and easy to fit in. Since the fabric is kind of a thick denim type, lining wasn’t necessary. The inside is beautifully finished with the use of a serger, special thanks to my auntie Dana! I did change the neckline so that it didn’t include the flap. Otherwise, I kept true to the pattern.
