Vest Is Done

 So I am FINALLY done with my vest and I am glad I did. This is my first time sewing a vest and I can see somethings I need to tweak about it but all in all I am happy with it and looking forward to making another in the near future. Now this is my first time doing an FBA on a princess seam and with it now done I think it did not have to add as much as I did but I am still happy with the fit and can just tweak it a little for the next one.

PR review:
Pattern Description: Lined vest with 6 variations

Pattern Sizing: 6 to 22 I used a size 14 with an fba

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? Pretty much , you have to bounce around a bit depending on which view you choose, but its only three pages of instructions.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I have no dislikes, this is my first time sewing a vest so not much to compare it to.

Fabric Used: A cotton sateen left over from a skirt

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I did an FBA, my first for a princess seam, and I lowered the apex a bit. I also left off the pocket flap (no real pocket).

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes and Yes

Conclusion: This is my first vest and I am happy that I did sew one and now I have a few more planned in the near future.

This is not something I learned in a book, but this is how I mark my buttons when I have to replace them after the FBA distorted the original placement.

Until next time, happy sewing...
