I was actually going to make a jacket, but when I started working on the arms, I knew it wouldn’t look so good. So I decided to make a vest instead.
I was quite happy with the shape, but the decorating ribbon I just “stitched” on without considering hiding the seams. I wanted it to look “fluffy” and warm (it is warm btw!), but the collar I wasn’t too pleased with.
I’ve used a pattern which I found on http://leko-mail.net/b/5708.jpg
White “teddybear” (StoffogStil)
Green ribbon from Tilda
White duffelcoat buttons
Pattern of the Week
The oversized shape has a cool bell shaped silhouette with a wide body and fitted sleeves
