20 year vest for mom

My mom bought this fabric years ago. She got busy working and taking care of us so never sewed her vest. This year my resolution is to make the things she has in her stash. The fabric is a jaquard microsuede. We found the black metalic cotton jersey in the clearance. Its warm, light, cozy! I also used the original pattern she wanted to use with the buttons. Are those buttons cool? Well I modified the vest for tummy adjustment. I left out the front darts. The back is stretchy and comfortable.

    I like jaquard vests, they look very smart and decorative and are a good accent to different outfits. Very nice fabric and great resolution:-)
