Hound's tooth  Smiley very interesting, thanks a lot!

Yes I drafted the pattern, it wasn't that difficult at all! What I did was a little bit freaky though... I put on a shirt that fits very well and with the help of some chalk I painted the shape of a vest on it. After that procedure, making a newspaper pattern was really much easier!  Grin I think I'm going to use that trick more often!

Thanks for your comments! Smiley Please make one, too! It's really not very difficult!

I ususally don't like vests. However, this one is great! I love how it fits on you. I also love that you paired it with a tank.

Wow, that's so clever! For people who doesn't have dressforms (like myself), that's a nice way to make tailored garments.

Oh, and your vest is beautiful, btw  Cheesy
