I made this today. didn’t take me that long and i enjoyed making it. I used the Franzi vest pattern. the instructions were pretty straight forward.
i’ve basically finished it except for the buttons, i haven’t decided what kind of buttons to use.
i’ve worn it around the house today and its very comfortable. can’t wait to were it out! :)
The fabric i used for the outer shell i think is a cotton polyester blend. i’m not really sure, i bought the fabric ages ago.
the lining is made with broadcloth. i don’t really like using lining fabric because i find it sticks to you if your the least bit sweaty.
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
