Oh How I love Lace!!! Review of Vogue 8713

So recently I made a vest. Here's a little background about the vest. Its a Vogue pattern number 8713. The reason I picked it is because it said EASY across the top. Ummmm......I guess it was. So here it goes.

Pattern Description: Misses Vest

Pattern Sizing: 16-24

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes it did!

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I think putting it together was kind of challenging because you couldn't see which way the vest was going at one point.

Fabric Used: I used lace and a contrast of denim.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Just the contrast of fabrics!

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? No, I personally wouldn't because it was kind of difficult. I would recommend though because it looks great on!

Conclusion: I am pleased with the final result. I might sew again once I get some more skills. If it wasn't for my mom’s help I would have been lost.
Got to have a muslin!

The Back!
The front!
I am so happy another project under my belt. Now if I can finish this dress for my Friday evening I will be doing the damn thing! Go MEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
