Happy new year Annette! What a way to start the new year with such a fine looking vest! I like your designer instinct to make a vest instead of the jacket. Thanks for your inspiration!

What a clever way to preserve your big blocks. Love the edge on your collar. There goes one stash out of your sewing room. Your hair is looking so great.

Happy New Year back! Your vest looks great, and the buttons add a special touch.

You write the greatest reviews! Great save with the messed-up fabric *and* the sleeves that didn't work. Very fun to read!

Very nice Annette - super idea for avoiding matching plaids at the side seams - you look beautiful with or without makeup - happy New Year - God bless!!

I love your reviews-always learn a lot from reading them and usually stuff another pattern in the drawer if it is to be found. I love what you did with this pattern and thanks for all the great fit hints and humor which makes my day.

The pattern picture does no justice to your vest. NancyZ should be ashamed! As always, your reviews are a delight to read and your garments are very chic and well fitting. Nice!

Well, you have one lovely warm vest! The color and fabric is right in style and those buttons cannot be topped - what more could you ask for? Great job as usual.

Very fabulous. Your amazing ingenuity is inspiring. The fabric is great. The lining looks especially lovely. I don't know where to begin on the buttons. They are very cool. *Love* them!

I love this vest, it looks warm and practical with a classy edge. You've turned a project with many disapointments into a winner.

That is a fantastic vest to take you through the deep cold in style! I can picture it with a bulky black fisherman's sweater, sleek ski pants and cute little aprés-ski the lodge by the fire with a cup of hot chocolate. You're probably going to send the paramedics to my house now to make sure I haven't finally gone off the deep end....:-)) I LOVE that stitching that you did to finish the edges and love how the buttons complement the whole thing perfectly!

This looks so nice on you. I really love those buttons. The outer fabric, lining, and buttons go together PERFECTLY, but would we expect any less from YOU??!! And...... you look beautiful in inferior make-up!

Really, really pretty!!!

My goodness, I turn my back for a second and this amazing creation is made. This vest is TDF and your knowledge on how to change, create, and design clothing is outstanding. Then not to mention the clever little stitching here and there, as well as no side seams on plaid. With the heft of this fabric, I can see that a vest would be more flattering than a jacket with sleeves. This is really a great look garment and your makeshift makeup is lovely.

The phrase comes to mind.... "making a silk purse out of a sow's ear" Great save. Love the humor in your review.
