|Pattern Description: |
Misses & Miss Petite Pants, Dress, Mini Dress or Tunic, Belt, Jacket & Vest.
I made the vest (view E).
8-24. I cut a size 16.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, very much so.
Front and Back views.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, this is a very easy pattern, with clear instructions and illustrations, especially for the lining, which is always a bit tricky.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I bought a white shirt and I was looking for something to wear with, for variation. I went looking for vests in stores, but I couldn't find anything I liked. That style was pretty popular in the 90's when I was a teenager. Memories! The 90's are back in fashion, so I thought - why not make one? I found this pattern in my stash and went for it.
Some cotton (or is it even linen?) woven. It's been in my stash for several years. The flower print and the texture really remind me of the vests I used to wear in the 90s! The lining is a dark green Bemberg.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
No changes, no alterations.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I might sew it again, if I need another vest. It's a quick and easy project that can be whipped up in an afternoon.
The 90s are slowly coming back in fashion, this is a great little vest pattern for the nostalgics
