Absolutely wonderful!! And thank you so much for the sizing tip. I have some striped silk that I can't wait to use with this pattern.

Another great meld of fabric to pattern. I just acquired this one, and with all the suggested fabric types on the pattern, I can't go wrong. Hoping to finish this before our SFO Opera trip in May!

A great job! Your vest looks much nicer than the one on the pattern envelope, which just looks boring.

I've been eyeing this pattern. After seeing how fabulous your turned out, I may have to get it!

So many comments, what can I say?! Great food for thought on a jacket Im planning, especially about the seam. Re collar - Im curious if Vogue recommended interfacing. Perhaps a tricot or biased woven would help next time. Kudos.

Using stripes is a fabulous choice. You've done a great job with a difficult fabric!

Thanks, everyone! Grey ann, I think you could modify the armhole pretty easily. You will need to adjust the armhole binding, accordingly, but it doesn't seem hard to me.

Very snazzy. You always inspire me! I don't look so good with the wider shoulders hanging down my arms. How simple do you think it would be to angle those armscyes so they shoulders would end at my natural shoulder line???

Fabulous! Love this in stripes. The pattern has so much potential. Can't wait to make it.

Your vest is super cute on you! I do really like it but one thing that has held me back is the fact that it is so very large! Going down a size will help, and after seeing yours, I have to get this pattern. Cute!!!

I knew this was a creation of yours while only a partial view was visible! Your fabric choices are always so cool! Always a statement piece.

Wasn't aware of this pattern but I now have to have it! Love what you did with the stripes; I can see how other talented people could take advantage of the design for decorative stitches, embroidery, using various color/texture fabrics. The sky is the limit for design opportunities with this vest. Thanks for the post (and it looks great and so comfy on you!).

Great result, the stripey fabric shows off the pattern seaming brilliantly. Like Carolyn I didn't see the potential in this pattern in the catalogue, but you have made a stiking top with it.

Lovely to see this made up. The stripes work really well with the seaming, it looks great!

Now that's a bold statement! I like it!

Fantastic Shams! Your striped knit fabric is just perfect for this fun vest. It looks great on you.

This looks great! I'm in the process of finishing up my version & also found the collar droopy so ended up facing it.

I saw this pattern and though meh! Now it's in the bag next sale. As usual your making of this top is just perfect. Love the fabric choice
