It may have been aggravating to sew, but the result looks great! I love the way the chiffon softens the menswear fabric, and I hope that you'll be able to wear it!

The vest looks very nice ! How did your quick fitting muslin look? 1/4-inch seam length differential is very slight. When I "walked" my Free pattern, all my seams matched. After making a quick muslin, I decided to make the ruffle fuller (i.e. longer), and in that case I think the fuller (and therefore "thicker") gathered edge will hold fine with elastic thread loops. I am looking forward to making the actual vest. I also suspect that the ruffle edge finish suggested, and the larger armholes might have been an attempt to attain a slightly "casually distressed" look that is so popular now, rather than a strict couture look. But I'm just guessing. I still think your vest looks nice !

So frustrating when you don't like the results of a project. Maybe you could add the ruffle to a more fitted vest pattern? Thanks for your comments.

Thanks for the heads-up. I have printed this pattern, but not made it up.
