What was your inspiration?
i always make each of the girls' a new outfit for the start of school, this is outfit #2, still 2 grand daughters left to go!! they're big enough to request patterns now, which can be a challenge! 1st time for this vest, the skirt i've probably made a couple dozen times!
What are you most proud of?
that i got the vest lined, because of the peplum, i needed to line it completely , then go back and iron, then stitch the armholes down- happy it turned out so well
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
dont be afraid to change something in a standard pattern, i happen to like vests lined, i think they lay better, especially one like this, which is curvy, just take your time and think it through!
