My very first sewing project with my new sewing machine. I made most of the project on my own but since this was ambitius I had to enlist the help of my mom to explain to me how to finish the sides of the vest. The pattern instructions were slightly vague and I have never been great a reading patterns. I love the vest, fits with all sorts of tops and is great for my business attire job. It only cost me about 10$ to make and would’ve cost me between 75 to 125$ to buy. I had to ajust the size in the bus and shoulders, I my size is nowhere near the standard pattern sizes.
Wool fabric, lining and 4 buttons.
