I used the franzi pattern to make this vest.
I started sewing it a long time ago but half way through I didn’t like it any more.
I’m still not sure if I’m the vest type of person, but when I saw it matched the lace dress I was sewing I got encouraged again and finished it.
It’s reversible and I didn’t add any buttons because I wouldn’t close it anyway.
I’m sure I’ll find something else to sew on the buttons my mother brough home for me from Paris – something I like a bit more than the vest.
