The vest challenge for City Wide Couture has me on task, finally. Thanks to Martina, the armholes are fitted, and of course, thanks to Pam Howard, the body of the vest was already a good fit. I'm working from Nancy Erickson's #1945 jacket pattern, converting it to a vest. I'm also working on a quilted vest, inspired by Mary Ray's articles in Threads. I'm piecing one side and the other will be solid. The theme is soft metals and it's underway! Later I'll have to determine which side gets the seams.
