Saw this on the side panel and the colors caught my eye. Very nice looking, and what fun fabric.

Ann, I never gave this pattern much attention, but now I think I'll try it. It seems the perfect way to use a lovely Asian printed silk like the one you used. I am drawn to lovely fabrics like that, and can't wait to try it! Thanks for writing this review. Your vest looks lovely!

Your version of this vest makes me want to get out my pattern and sew it right now. Fabulous fabric! Great with the pants too.

Great looking. You always seem to have the most interesting fabric. Very nice.

I Like It! Great fabric choice and it is still stylish....or does it really matter? If we like it, we wear it--and people think we look fantastic, and isn't that stylish in itself? In other words, who cares how old it is, as long as you look great it is great!

Fabulous fabric for this style. So nice to see a review of an older pattern that looks as stylish today as it did when you made it.

I think that fabric is used in one of Sandra Betzina's coats in one of her books.

I like the shape of the top and the impact of the material. Thanks for the recommendation.
