Fraser Valley, C...






Its actually less if you don’t add buttons. I’m totally fine with no buttons as this fabric easily will get caught in the teeth of the sewing machine.

Its a neutral knit that I got from fabricland here in town. Its a good layering piece for some of the fall items I plan to wear on my work trip next week. I like how I was able to use it with a previous dress I have made. I love fall because of the textures of the materials. This is a unisex pattern so guys can use it too!

This was a $10 project as all you need is a little bit of fabric. Its my first vest but certainly not my last!

Material Notes

Knit & some poly rayon lining.

    So cute vest, I like the texture of the fabric a lot. The colour and design are perfect for combining with any thing in the wardrobe. Nice choice!

    Great vest; my daughter has requested a similar one, now I know what she was referring to. Think I might take a ‘look’ at Fabricland sale this weekend. :-)

      Thanks Redbelka! Now that I got practise with a thick knit I will try to make more winter items. I could make done as presents for Christmas.

    Beautiful vest!!! I love it with the belt. I’m a bit nervous, as fall hasn’t arrived yet down here, so I can’t wear my fall projects….

      Thank you Elpida, the fabric for the belt was a gift a while ago. Fall will come soon & you will have to post your lovely designs!

    The fabric makes this looks quite glam. I love vests-good for cold weather. Did it really take an hour?

      Thanks so much floragirl! I used a ball point needle & there is only 2 pieces to this pattern. I spent 30 mins to do it. The key is to have your mind set on fabric to use. I did not add elastic to the back, as I will share the vest with my mom. If its a boxy shape it’ll confirm according to the belt I wear.
