It’s now Dec. Better late than never? So… this was supposed to be a jacket with puffed sleeves? I think you made a good decision. I read you are still learning. Since this wasn’t designed to be a vest, the armholes are likely not the same as they would be if it were supposed to be a vest so it is harder to make assumptions about fit. It looks to me like learning how to do full bust adjustments would likely be a good thing – and worth your time. My mother made all my clothes until I was old enough to make them myself. She did bust adjustments when I got into my big teens. She likely did them for herself. Me, nah, I just added to the side seam and lengthened the front a bit. I never made muslins. I had some real duds too. I haven’t sewn much for the past decade, but the sewing bug came back – big time. I bought a Simplicity Amazing Fit shirt pattern because I didn’t have a recent good shirt pattern. It blew me away. Although I haven’t sewn it yet, I was amazed by the pattern. It comes with 4 fronts – A, B, C, D cup! I tissue fitted and was stunned! The difference was truly amazing, just like the pattern says. Next, I applied iron on interfacing to the pattern paper so it will last a long time. I fitted it again and made a couple minor adjustments and will cut it when my scissors come back from getting sharpened. Several, if not all, of the common pattern companies have made a number of blouse and pants patterns designed to make good fitting master patterns. From there, the sky is the limit as to what you can sew and know whatever you make will fit. If you get this – I hope you do – please try one or more of these patterns. I think it will really help you on your way to sewing better. Your next vest, even if from a jacket pattern will fit like it was made for you. This is a cute style. I like what you did with it. You have potential, gal. Keep up the good work. Cheers.
