Very chic and flattering. I love the contrast and the asymmetric closure.

Oh man, I LOVE it. Your fabric/color choices are fab, and I think the fit looks great. That asymmetric closure is sensational.

I love that collar treatment and the (matching?) buttons. The fit may not be perfect, but I would have never noticed if you would not have mentioned it. I love the vest with this skirt. Very stylish

I like the whole ensemble. It looks so fresh and chic!! This vest is very modern, and if your picture speak 1000 words, 2 of them would be great fit.

Cidell! Het goede werk. Ik ben zo jealous! Waar vond u dat tijdschrift? Ik hout van het! :)

No one but you will see anything wrong in that best - I think it looks great on you. Love the asymmetric closure. I'm with Lindsay - looks like something you'd pay a lot of money for in a boutique, and you wouldn't get that fit in RTW.

Love it. Looks like something you'd pay a lot of money for at a trendy boutique in the Village.

It looks very cool and current. I think you look great and even if you feel the fit isn't perfect it still works.

Cidell, your fabric selections are superb to showcase the lines of this fabulous vest - a little bit vintage, a little bit flirty, and totally chic. (I also love the little top you're wearing underneath; it's very You.) Please wear this vest with the confidence that you look beautiful. Lovely, Lily

It's really cute, and I agree with you that the fit could be a bit better, but that shouldn't stop you from wearing it!

Nice to see you try Knip mode. The color combination is great. Just wear it with pride, it's fine, fit is better than most rtw.

Cidell, I think your version looks much more attractive than the version in the magazine. The colors suit you really well and the asymmetrical closure is an interesting design feature. The photo looks really good, however only you know whether the fit is just right for you. It's an interesting pattern and your review is helpful.

Oh My Gosh I love it!!! That white striped fabric really makes that vest and the little bit of grey wool...Fabulous!

I love how you used the trim around the collar! Your buttons look much better than the buckle, too. Great vest!

I think this vest is perfect. The design and color are terrific together. I know you feel as though the fit is "off", but I don't see it and I'm sure most others won't either. Again, very nice top.
