Remember the cherry fabric? When I bought it I thought it was going to be delicious to craft from it. And it was.
Today, since I had a few free hours (such joy:), I started creating my own pattern for a vest. Remember the Vogue picture? Well, like that, but with cherries. Sweet and of course, very cool. At least that’s what I thought.
I built up my courage and actually what convinced me to try it was this pattern for a bunny vest. I was afraid that the pattern was going to look like shishkebab, but amazingly the pattern is pretty cool. Except the hands wholes, that are too big for my figure.
Hanger view, not so shocking:
What I did not expect in the end – not at all – was that I might look like a tablecloth. :O
And if you think I was joking, beware the piping!
Well, there you have it. Cool or kitsch?

u are right 🙂 it looks funny! kinda strange/big at the shoulders. all in all it’s a funky vest 😀 could be cool, depends on where you would wear it.
I think you need to take in the armholes a bit. A vest like this needs to be well tailored and fit like a dream. Otherwise it has the potential to look “like a tablecloth,” as you put it. But if you tweak the armholes I think it’ll look just right–and the fabric and style are very, very cute.
Yep, yep, you are right. I will.
Thanks for your words.
