knit with 2 strands of caron simply soft last weekend (very quick), loosly based on this bernat pattern.  it adds about 5 pounds on me and I don't really like it (the neckline ended up higher than I'd wanted) but it doesn't look too bad with a skirt as opposed to pants.

you did an awesome job! i really like it, and while i don't think it adds five pounds, i totally know what you mean. i have like four sweaters i made myself but never wear because i feel like they make me look really puffy.

but you look great! i can't believe you did that in a weekend! my hat is off to you!

a few weeks ago i was overcome with an urge to make a sweater vest.  too bad it is now 80 every day here (only for the vest -- i LOVE the weather!!!) so it is on hold. you have inspired me to get it together and get it done!!!  i think it is cute.  what if you didnt wear a collared shirt, and just a scoop neck (or even a t-shirt)? to "slim" down? (although I too, think it is very flattering on you!)  sometimes collared shirts get bunchy and maybe that is what is causing some trepidation...

kategirl, I agree with the previous 2 replies - it's the shirt, not the vest that's causing you to feel it adds puffiness even though the rest of us don't think so.  We usually are our own worst critics.  I think you did a great job on the vest and it looks very cute on you.

actually, the more I look at that picture the more I like it.  I think I hated it with the first shirt I tried it on with (a long sleeve v neck) and just wasn't liking it.  but thanks for saying it looks okay - I think I'm always a little worried about wearing stuff I've made.
