Bought rather thick knitted wool material which was pretty expensive. I had a special project in mind but when I saw this vest in Burdas october magasin I changed my mind. For a while I tought it would end in disaster as the wool was so thick but ironing can make wonders. The pattern was made for smaller women, size 17-21, and I´m the opposite so I had to lenthen the pattern a bit. Bothe the armholes and body. Well….finally I´m very content.
Knitted wool. Lined with an viscose material I had since before. Mother-of-pearl buttons.
