Shapes 9 Lives Vest
I have to say is these patterns are seriously large and seriously short. LOL. I cut a size 2 after tissue fitting on Ruby. I didn't think the hips would be big enough using the size 1. I am glad I cut the 2 because I think it would have been tight in the shoulders. But, having said that, I will be folding out at least 2 inches in the back piece. Also the picture here shows it to be longer than it actually is. The short side sits at the waist and the longer sits at the high hip. To make this work for me, I had to add 5 inches!
I may do a FBA on this top/vest the next time around. I really like it and it was very easy to sew.
Here's a little of the back view. Think I need modeling lessons?
Over all, I'm pleased with it and I'll be making it again.
