This vest was another experiment. I narrowed the wide shoulders to see what would happen. I like them except that the narrower shoulders change the way the very large armhole looks and drapes, but that’s an easy fix for the next version. I’m going to raise the armhole about 1 1/2″. Other than that, I really like it and it will get a lot of wear.
I did a lot of hand basting on this vest which does decrease the amount of ripping out I have to do. The next project will be something cotton that is less trouble to sew. No, wait, I forgot that I have to finish up that gray shirt first.
Now that I have four very nice fleece vests to wear on cold winter mornings, the spring temperatures will surely get warmer so that I have to wait until next winter to wear them.
