This vest was self drafted. The fabric is from Marcy Tilton. It's one of the pieces I got up at the Sewing Expo in Puyallup especially for this vest. It worked out really well. It's a ribbed cotton knit. I like the weight and drape.
And, as I was saying last post, it has the right kind of print for me. Nothing that draws the eye away from the lines of the vest but not a solid either. This is the kind of print I'll be looking for in the future.
I have no idea why these two photos came out looking so different. I took them at the same time, in the same light.
I'm in the process of making the second vest. I've cut the collar down a bit. This first collar wasn't interfaced...bad on me....so it flops down. Actually, it's not that bad. If it stood up it would bug me anyway.
I love the free-hanging pocket. It doesn't really show from this photo but it's only attached from the top.
I'm off to the studio for my Sunday church service...Prairie Home Companion!
