What was your source for this sewing project? Other Tell us more about what inspired you. After finishing the Winter Jacket I thought the pattern (modified) would make a nice travel vest. I have a Scott vest that is too small so I wanted something that have lots of pockets on the lining side so I wouldn't have to carry a handbag. I had bought some ultra suede in Portland OR in June which I thought would work well in a vest and I had lots of faux suede in my stash that complemented the blue/grey of the ultra suede.
