Chicago, United ...
Well, it didn’t turn out as fantastic as natural-tooi’s (her’s is GORGEOUS!), but I still like it. I used black velvet, broadcloth (lining), and a gold pin I bought from Goodwill. I adjusted the back measurements a bit so I could make it fitted without adding elastic thread. I also gathered the neck seam (not shown) so the vest didn’t appear as “bulky”.
All and all, I really like it! Thanks, natural-tooi, for posting the pattern instructions.
Sip cocktails by the fire in faux fur, patterned silks, and more luxurious fabrics.
