Easy long vest pattern
I picked up Simplicity 2188 a while back when Simplicity was a $0.99 on sale at JoAnn. It's not the cutest pattern, at first glance, but I liked the vest it contained--shown in a lightweight white for summer.
I had some weird tannish-blackish suiting sitting around, only a yard or so, so I turned it into the mysterious, open summery vest. I'm thinking fall/early winter for this, 'cuz it's not warm or anything!
I had a lining that matched very closely. And I interfaced the collar, understitched all the way, etc. It was sort of like a mini-tailoring project! A very simple one, of course.
Stay tuned next week--I have a How to Wear DIY post planned, and I'd love your ideas on how to wear this funky thing, too!
