Echolalia - I'm making my wedding dress...I'll be reviewing it when it's finished. No groomsmen, though - we don't have attendants. MrsKeds - I got the fabric at a store called Calico Corners. I love the fabric, too :) Thanks so much for all the nice comments!

I am so impressed! A vest can be a very difficult thing to fit properly. You did a fantastic job! And with the design changes you made, this one-of-a-kind vest is simply striking. What a wonderful "gift for your future husband!

"Matching a large print across welt pockets is something I may never do again, though!" Oh, but haven't you done a wonderful job of it. Great fit and great fabric choice too! So what are you wearing for the wedding? And, are you making matching vests for the groomsman?
