The Vest is finished!!! Great fun and easy to follow pattern. I am donating this one to charity. A new Vest is in the works as we speak. I am creating one that I will model sometime in the next two weeks. The other one that I am creating is a little different. Using the same pattern I have added 6 inches to the girth and 6 inches to the length in back and 6 inches in the front.
You may wonder how I did it? the pattern stitch is one inch in width, so by adding this pattern in certain specific areas, I am able to expand the vest to fit me, without deviating from the look the designer intended for the pattern. The vest onhte right is the original pattern without modifications.
