I love this vest! (And the top underneath it too :)) What a great use of this fabric. I love the double knit trim. I have a lot of this yardage too, and I may use your idea for the edging. So cute!

Dorothy, What a perfect garment for this great fabric. Your alterations and binding treatment are so clever to create a wonderful vest that compliments your wardrobe beautifully! Good work!

I love the fabric you choose. It makes a very smart looking vest. I am impressed by the way you adapted the pattern to make a vest. It is great that the vest has no side seams. The vest looks stylish on you.

Very cute vest! How perfect that it has no seams. The hemline reminds me of the Plaza Jacket, which I also like very much. Nice adaptation.

Very chic and distinctive. I love that leopard print T-shirt in one of the photos, too.
