Mary, actually as a matter of fact I am interested in trying that. Seems simpler also. Where do you get that?

Deepika, Next time give satin foldover elastic a try instead of binding. (Not that yours doesn't look great.) You just fold it and zigzag it on. One step -- so much faster. You can see it on the polarfleece toddler's vest I made from KS 2911 (review posted). I really like it.

Deepika, you did a great job with the zipper and the binding looks very good too, if you keep improving in this speed, you'll outmaster all the rest of us any day now!!

Wow! Very nicely done.

wow! you all are so kind. Actually believe it or not before this vest, I was not so sure about my binding skills. I had only done it once before last year, but by the time I was done with it, I was having so much fun with it! Great pattern to practice this technique.

Even better than RTW! :)

Wow, Deepika, this vest looks like RTW! You did a great job with the lycra binding, thanks for the tips.

That vest is truely awesome. I don't feel like I'm up to the challenge of a zipper yet but I'm going to mark that pattern for a present for my husband sometime soon when I get more gutsy. It's a really beautiful job Deepika!

Deepika, this is a wonderful vest, and a very very helpful review! My husband lives in zip-front polarfleece vests, and I can't wait to try this pattern and get some really nice MM fleece to try it with.

Deepika, I love the look of that binding. I'm going to have to try it. Thanks!
