Have you ever had your sewing plans all laid out, pattern cut and then something better came to mind? I felt like these past three weeks I was a bit overwhelmed because everything that I planned on making was sidelined after seeing another inspiration photo from Pinterest or Instagram? This is exactly what happened with this beautiful crepe fabric that I used to create this vest.
I scrapped that project and then settled on tailored pants, selected the pattern and was ready to cut. I struggled back and forth as I have created so many palazzo pants over the past year and did not want to add another. Right at the last minute, I decided to create a VEST with pockets that I always wanted to add to my classic pieces that I can rock and style all year long.
To create the vest, the instructions are straightforward and no adjustments were needed for the size I cut (Size 12). The only changes I made was eliminating the side slit.
The pattern did not state to understitch the facing but I always do it with any garment that has a facing. This helps so much with ensuring that it lays flat.

Thank you so much for reading and be sure to let me know how you would rock this VEST! Don’t forget to stop by my Instagram page or by my blog to check out my 2019 first quarter makes.
