This is my Franzi, which I made from the leftovers after making my Bella pants. The only alterations I made to the original pattern were 1) I made the vest longer for a better fit 2) I did not fold out the front 3) I used buttons on the back. I am pretty satisfied with this one and it goes well with my Bella pants in the office. Next time I´ll change the front “V” shape and make it a bit deeper.
The lining is very pink, not red as it might look in the picture…
