I like this pattern a lot, my first version was red linen/cotton, with red sateen-weave cotton insert, collar and binding, plus varied old red buttons. It adds a lovely zing of colour to a shirt + trousers outfit.

I did find it a bit generous through the bust and I think next time will make a size 10. I made my usual size 12 and am an 8 in RTW

Lovely! Marcy Tilton's patterns tend to run large - how is the fit on this one? Is the fit true to measurements or generous? Thanks!

This looks great! I bought this at the last Vogue sale, so nice to see it reviewed.

Your vest turned out beautifully with the contrasting fabrics and gorgeous glass buttons. I'm sure you will enjoy wearing it in the cooler weather.

Sue, the vest looks great. I see that you mention you made no pattern alterations. Can you tell us what size you used and how it compared to your usual Vogue size?
