What I made:
Project Runway-inspired vest pattern, Simplicity 2556 (and in fact, this comes from the same pattern as the vest in Day 8!)
Corduroy fabric from Joann.com
When I made it:
March 2010. Fun fact: I burnt a whole in the lining while I was ironing the vest after I had finished the whole thing. But at the point, since I was completely done and basically just too lazy to go back and fix it, I just left it how it was. So never ask me to see the inside of this vest! Or maybe DO ask, if you want to see the damage a hot iron can truly do.
|The part of the lining that is NOT burned through :)|
I've always dug corduroy, so I loooove that part of it.
I also love the tortoise shell button I used for the front closure. It's one of those things that I just happened to have lying around in the sewing notions box, and I think it goes perfectly!
