Great vest and great use of leftover fabric.

I think your vest turned out great - without the ruffles it's a classic.

Great looking vest. And I agree, Burda WOF instructions are easy if you leave out the welt pockets and ruffel stuff!

That really looks good on you, so chic and professional. You did a good job working around the side-seam issue. I have done that myself and it is really frustrating.

Well, you left out the "secret" to this vest, but there is still a lot of detail remaining to look beautiful, such as the peplum shaping. It definitely looks feminine without the ruffles--I love it and I will have to try it!

Your vest looks terrific. I really like the side view photo, it shows the shaping really well. Thanks for the detail about the stripe directions, that difference would bother me too!

It looks great on you! Thank you for the tip about the grainline on the collar. I traced this a while back but haven't made it yet, so I'll follow your lead and change the grain. Nice work!

Gorgeous, I've had my eye on this one too and without the ruffles it looks more appropriate for cooler weather. Thanks for showing the side shaping too, it's hard to see that detail in the magazine.

Love this vest with the peplum. It looks great on you. Your version convinces me to add this to the to sew list.

I love your vest - beautifully crafted.

Gorgeous. I have this on my ever lengthening things to do list, but I am sure I couldn't make a version as nice as yours.
