My first vest was an "easy" pattern and it turned out for crap.  This time I used McCall's 5186 and check the results:



Excuse my baby-sized laptop and the crafty corner over there... that's where the magic happens.


Another shot:


And a detail of the buttony-goodness:

Can't do a tute because I used a pattern (McCall's 5186).  If you keep checking at Joann's for their pattern sales (that they have ALL the time), you can actually get it for only $2.

That is really cute!  I really like the fit and where it sits.  It's impossible to find a vest that fits just right in stores.  Your's looks great and very professional!

I've been thinking about making a vest, but I haven't been actively keeping my eyes open for a pattern.  (shame on me!)  I might just have to start looking again

What a great vest!!  I love the fabric, and the little buttons on the chest.  Did you make the bottoms (I can't tell if that's shorts or pants) too?
