I used my_butterfly's tutorial, but I changed it so that it would work for me. I made this last August, and am now only putting it up (Shameful I know)
I had a pair of nice bootcut fadey jeans, and they got a bit too tight. Therefore, I made myself a waistcoat/vest with it!

I cheated, and put velcro, but the buttons make it look like they work. Smart, huh? Wink
Please tell me what you think? Smiley

That vest is way cute! (Cuter than Tom Higgenson's nose)
You did a great job. I love the sneaky velcro Tongue! Did you use the leg of the jeans? I might have to try this.

Thanks both! (and LOL at the Tom Higgenson comment Smiley)
Yes, actually I did use the legs of the jeans. The faded part was the top. Eventually those are just my knock around shorts (My mom calls them Daisy Dukes Smiley)
Here's the link for the tutorial; everything's the same except for my velcro-buttons (Thank you! It was actually just a lazy invention since I've never been successful at making buttonholes Lips sealed) http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=250504.0
