I made this vest with a pattern I got for Christmas. Its a butterick design by Katherine Tilton. Very smart use of negative and the positive sides of the fabric. I really was restricted by the amount of fabric. It was a gift years ago.

Its going to have to be starched as the fabric got soft when I pressed it. The buttons are vintage from the stash mom gave me. The original design has a hidden button placket yet, I did not have enough material so I improvised!
