So I recently found out that I have jury duty...ugh, and I have nothing appropriate in my wardrobe (most of my dress clothes are now to small due to having a baby) Anyway, I really wanted a vest and I saw this tute yesterday
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=250504.0

So I kill two birds with one stone , I get a sweet vest AND something to wear for the dreaded jury duty.
The only real difference in mine from the tute, other than the obvious fabric, is I added a seam under the bust line to accentuate to boob'age.
Now my only real dillema is how to close the vest: Ribbon, buttons......I'm stumped, so if you have a suggestion as to what would look better, I'm all ears.

Front


The Fabric


Displaying the bustline seam


Back


Also I just wanted to add, that I am sorry I dont have a before picture of the pants. And, the fabric was a poly/spandex blend. It gave me hell, I kept having to readjust the tension & I never quite got it right. So the stitching is not some of my best (I have never sewn on polyester before), but It suits its purpose, unless I were to point out the defects of the stitching, noone would notice. So I'm happy with it, but I'll be even happier when it is totally finished.

Thats really cute!  I would do buttons, because with the fabric, the ribbon may seem a bit fussy.

I love the pattern. Yeah I agree with the buttons. I say sneak bright colored buttons on it.   Wink
