I know it is supposed to be summer and hot and the weather was quite nice but this one is for the chill days. This is a new pattern from a new sewing patterns company to me, Wearologie. The Aestiva Vest !
Sleeveless vest, with two length options, collar option, and full lining.
I love the piping around the waist and the pockets. I had some faux leather piping from another project and it was perfect for this project. How great are the deep pockets on this thing! I am always anxious about sewing with patterns from companies I don`t know but this time all was good. Great instructions!
The fabric is beautiful boucle type, with a bit of sparkle, very lovely. I bought it years ago with a long coat in my mind and this project is kind of perfect for it. I lined the whole vest with acetate lining.
Arghh, I hate this pictures, do you see the hem ?? The horror!! It is fixed now :)
In the waist, due the construction is a tunnel where I can "thread' a belt in, very smart idea!
I definitely recommend Wearologie, in fact, I bought their Prism dress pattern and can`t wait to make it !
And the Aestiva in "action" !
