Dec. 1st … was just checking to see what the latest is in Vests. I love them and think I need to make a couple new ones. I like the extra warmth they provide and they’re great for layering. Change your vest and change your outfit in 10 seconds too! Yours looks really comfy! I was eyeballing your pattern months ago – wondering if I’d like the cowl collar on a vest. You did a good job especially in light of working with scraps! I like the other Pendleton in your blog, however I see it as less practical if you intend to wear it layered. From my experience, vests with lapels and collars tend to be a bit awkward when layering. Larger collars make tossing on a sweater, coat or cape more of a hassle than vests with either simpler or no collars. The narrow cowl looks good. Guess it depends upon your lifestyle and climate. i.e. I have a down vest with stand up collar that will fold down to look somewhat like a wing collar. I can wear it either under or over a hoodie or sweater. Some days I’ll start out with both, the order of which depends on weather predictions. There’s an old saying where I live (BC Canada), “If you want to know what the weather is going to do, wait 5 minutes and find out”. …btw, re your vintage red dress - The pattern is almost bang-on to the pattern I wanted to buy in the spring – an A-line no waist seam “Tea Dress”. I love the 40s styles; their clean, simple, pure lines with a hint of fitting the 20s didn’t have – basic, practical (many had pockets) yet attractive and subtly flattering. It’s amazing what a bright red print can do. Happy stitching on your next creation. Thanks for your review.
