A new vest



I just finished making this vest, using Virginia Robertson's “Long Vest/Jacket” pattern, this weekend.

It really is long – about mid calf, but it would be just as cute shorter. These photos show less than half the length of the full vest.

Here’s the back, showing the details I added with little bits of dupioni silk and threadwork:
