Week 25 – Black Vest
Week 25, slow in coming but finally uploaded. My little black vest to keep my middle warm! I used remnant black wool cashmere and a wool blend for the outside and lined the inside with my small square of ‘Steampunk’ spoonflower fabric. I wasn’t likely to use the Steampunk fabric for anything else, so it seemed to make sense as the lining.
The pattern is a simple one, but one that I worked out in calico first, to avoid wasting time and fabric with a failed vest pattern (it has happened before – not this year, but before..). With two buttons to fasten the vest at the front, it is a well fitting little number, and has scope to turn into a jacket pattern I feel!
