Ava's vest & skirt

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!

Wonderful little outfit. Really like the fact that you lined the vest, they just fit so much better. Really like the fabrics you used. Most of all, Ava looks perfect in her new outfit. Thank you for sharing.
