Thanks so much for reviewing this! I just found this pattern at my local thrift store and couldn't believe my luck. And I got lucky again when I found this review. Thanks, and wonderful job!

emr, I'm currently making this vest, haven't gotten to the lining/tucks aspect yet but can appreciate your approach. Hope to post my pic when done.

This is just lovely. I remember when I first started sewing and didn't know what I didn't know. I would tackle anything - and wore everything I made because I couldn't afford to have a wadder. I'm trying to return to that mindset to a certain extent, instead of agonizing endlessly over will this work, etc., etc. Great job!!!

Neat vest. This review is good evidence why it's nice to review a pattern even though it's OOP: two commenters have the pattern, and a 3rd is goingn to copy the style!

This is just the inspiration I need for top to go with an Evening skirt. Can't wait to get designing now. Thanks emr.

I have this pattern and I have made this vest. You did a great job lining up all those tucks in the back. I agree with you on the way the back hangs with the tucks and the lining. I made mine out of camels hair which I think makes the problem worse. But, I have gotten so many compliments on this vest that I can't complain. I still threaten to make another one now and then, just haven't gotten around to it. Great Job!

This looks fantastic, I love the back view. Your certainly lined up the plaid pieces perfectly. Very nice.

Definitely a classic piece. Great job on matching the plaids.

What a cute vest! I love the neck line most. I hope this pattern is still available somewhere.

I've had this pattern for years and loved the effect of it, but I have not made it, with changing styles and my changing self. I should be brave!
