i allways liked vests! and as i had the pattern for the jason-vest allready, i just started and tried to “modify” a few things.
for this project i used a very old pair of levis (my favorite ones) these are the very light blue parts!!-i had to cut around the massively destroid parts and used for the contrast bits of a pair of jeans i once bought and never wore (the dark part of the vest). to contrast all this, i used a very vivid colored green and blue lining in cotton. (the buttons are covered with the same material.
i also changed the way, the pokets are a little, as i like them this way better than in the original pattern.
as i have never ever done a lining in any of my selfmade things, i am quite proude with the result.
2 old pairs of jeans (one light and one very dark blue), lining in very light cotton in green and blue, covered buttons (selfmade), to silver rings for the backsite belt
