In-vest

As promised, I finished my vest. However, it's cold and rainy, and mom is out of commission with the sick.. so I had to fend for myself picture-wise.
So yes.. all you get are crappy bathroom mirror shots. I'll do a proper finished-object post when I can press Mom into taking some better pics, but this is it worn with the sun dress I mentioned a few posts back.
The pattern calls it a vest, but it's more like a short-sleeve cardigan, which is just what I wanted. Were I to make this again, I'd decrease for the neckline sooner, and make it more of a deep-v.

The only mod I made was to add a loop closure and a button (the pattern as-written doesn't close at all). This lone little flower button was in my stash - obviously it was meant to be!

So, now I'm left with a conundrum - work on a WIP... or start something new?

Love it-but I honestly have no idea how you manage to finish so many things. I would have been working on that for at least a year!
Hope Mom is better soon...

That turned out very nice! Can't wait to see better pictures of it. It's lovely together with your dress.

That is a lovely wee cardigan; no way it's a vest though. Should be very useful for your summer.
