Dalhart, Texas, ...
I came across a sale on Vogue way back when I had my full arm cast on and had noticed they had some nice looking vest patterns. I purchased one after consulting my darling on what he would like for me to make him. This is the pattern he chose. I had intentions on making two work vests for Ashley, but in the end I could only make one. That’s okay I got plenty experience from this pattern to know how to make it better the next time. It has been for ever since I have used a envelope pattern, I was kind of scared to cut the thing fearing cutting out the wrong pattern size.
I would have had enough fabric for two but one of the front pieces got completely messed up from the attempt to construct the pockets the way the instructions suggested. So, being the seamstress I am I threw the instructions away and cut a new front and made the pockets my way.
