Notes This vest is pretty true to size. If you are uncomfortable with close to three body add to the areas that you like looser. I didn't make a Full Bust Adjustment and I wish I had, but, I'm still happy with the fitting and result. I utilized a printed cotton duck material, which sews up like a denim. I added 1/4" to the seam allowance so I could make flat fell seams. I used a solid indigo denim for the shawl collar and used topstitching thread to accent the edges and seams. While I haven't quite finished, I only need buttons and buttonhole. I haven't found the perfect button yet, but, it still looks nice as an open vest with jeans or denim skirt.

The shawl collar requires some experience with bespoke construction. I refreshed my memory by referring to a YouTube tutorial for shawl collars. just one of many. Otherwise, straight forward construction.

Pics coming soon.
