So my older brother had given me this awesome shirt with this Scene-kid looking printing on the front. I've been saving it for something truly awesome, so 3 weeks later it hits me. Make a vest! So i grabbed the free pattern at BurdaStyle.com and got a'cuttin! The design on the front of the tee is now the back of the vest(Did I take any pictures? No!)
I made a simply modification to the pattern. the back is two pieces with a seam down the back. But I didnt want to cut the design, so instead I trimmed the seam allowance(5/8ths inch) off that particular side of the pattern and it worked perfectly! Also, the size chart told me to make myself a size 40 and that seemed like too much, so I made a 38. It was still too big, so next time, I'm making a 36, which makes sense. Also I was too lazy to add buttons-too afraid of trying to make button holes)so I used a sweet pin instead.
It was very simple! Every newbie should try this and if they need help, PM me!
So If you make one without a lining, you could make a size 40 with just a size Medium guys tee! But trust me. I hate making linings and in this project, its totally worth it! Do it!!!
