This is the vest I'm going to be making for my Advanced Apparel Construction (AD 303) class final project. We're to have at least 3 techniques that we learned in class incorporated in this project. So I'm going to have and Edge-to-Edge lining (lining covers entire inside of garment), piping going around all edges and the double breasted face, and welt button holes (no better way to finish a button hole.... no slower way to do it either).
I'm going to make it out of 24oz canvas for the outside and a nice smooth twill for the inside. I don't have enough buttons, so I'll also go looking for a dozen 1"-1 1/2" diameter buttons.
It's not due for another month, but I'm already working on the pattern. After I finish the pattern then I'll order the canvas and then get constructing it as soon as I can.
I got the idea for the design from ~DavidRapozaArt [link]
Just changed it up a little to fit the requirements.
