I’ve used a pattern from Stoff&Stil.no
The vest is comfortable and light, but a bit short in my opinion. It took me a while to make it, and it still doesn’t look perfect enough. A few seams is done by hand, and I had to add different fabrics to the inside of the vest because I was out of blue acetate.
I’ve used two eyelets to make holes for the ribbon, and annoyingly enough, because the fabric is very thin, the eyelet wouldn’t attatch correctly to it – so I had to sew it back on in order to keep it from unravelling.
Stoffet er fryktelig tynt!
Hvis du skal feste maljer til et plagg som er uten fòr, anbefaler jeg at du enten legger til litt ekstra stoff der hvor maljene skal være, eller lager en kant som er ganske tykk. Da vil maljen holde seg i ro og du unngår at stoffet rakner rundt den, og den løsner.
