I work at a restaurant where we were recently told that our uniform would be changing. (We used to wear blue dress shirts and these terribly boxy mens-cut vests) I bought my new pants and button down shirts, but when they said we could wear our own solid black vests, I saw this as a chance to break out the old sewing machine!
The vest is completely self-drafted, for better or worse. It is also fully-lined. Other than the vest I made for my daughter’s Halloween costume last year, this is the first vest I have ever made. Looking back on the process, I should have gotten a pattern for the instructions, and just altered it to achieve the look I wanted.
