Summer Suit

First time making a vest and pants! The pants (city shorts) surprised me; it was easier than I thought to make pants that fit! I’ll never buy ill-fitting pants again! (don’t know why I did in the first place). I think the vest turned out well. I was looking for a polished look, so I went without tabs in the back. My first time to make button holes! Fun!

Material Notes

Cotton fabric, buttons

    I just love this – the shorts are perfect! Love the neck on the vest and the tiny pockets.

    Ooooh, I really like the vest. Did you use a pattern for either the shorts or the vest?

    Nice job. A nice look of sophistication and yet casual! Think I just may try it myself…but I’ll send it to you for the button holes!
