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!!!

What are you waiting for?!  Get Craftin'!

That is amazing! The fabrics you chose are great, they go really well together. It really suits you and looks very well made. The pin looks great too! It would be nice to see the back but hey Tongue
Is it irritating to print off the pattern? I have a giant thing against patterns, I don't really understand the sizing and I just...don't like them.

Thanks guys!  KidWithKemikals,  like the tee, Id been saving the Glen Plaid for a rainy day as well.
ludicrouslouisa, printing it off was supprisingly easy!  And its only 13 pages unless you print the instruction PDF as well.  Id say with this pattern, make the size of your bust size.  I'd also be willing to help if you need it.
     I'll post a picture of the back when i get home!  See you girls in a week!
