Great to see this one made up. I have this pattern, but was always rather put off by the envelope photo - it seemed very bulky, but yours looks much better. Are you sure it is view A however? It doesn't look overlapped in your photo.

Dorothy, terrific vest. Your fabric was ideal. I remember you choosing that lovely fabric at PRWDU.

I definitely agree with meanjean, I never would have chosen this pattern until now. Your fabric is beautiful and it looks so nice on you. Since I have a "straight" figure, I'll definitely put this on my wishlist.

Very nice! I have the "straight figure" type. I will have to try this one.

Beautiful vest. Glad to see it made up properly. I sewed this awhile back and did something wrong in figuring the bust measurement and wound up with a huge armhole. Needless to say, it was a wadder. After seeing your effort, I may try it again.
