Thought I would show you how I made the vest - it's very easy.
1. I used a shirt to make the pattern - the armhole is the trickiest part, it has to be wide enough, that's why I used a shirt for measurements. The fabric is doubled.
I made a pointy in the back.
2. I used the back piece to trace the front pieces - again the fabric is doubled. The shoulder width, the armholes and the side-seams are what you have to watch here - they have to match.
I made a rounded front.
3. Sew shoulder seams and side seams. Sew bias-tape around all the edges - and the vest is done.
I used a rose pin to close the vest.
Be blessed, Tone
