San Diego, Calif...
I originally made this vest for my husband, but it was the first time I was using this particular pattern (and also my first time attempting men’s clothing!) and it ended up being too small for him. After another friend used it as part of his outfit for my wedding, I gave it to my mother to keep in her “costume closet”. It is made of cotton corduroy in a nice Bordeaux color, and is fully lined with four pockets on the front.
