No body was home to help me take pictures. So here I am modeling my new vest.
And a side view.
The big bold leather buttons really make a statement. They were a part of my dear departed mother in laws button stash, I'm so glad I got to use them, we think they may have been of one of my dear departed father in laws jackets.
Not wanting the front of the vest to sag or gape when buttoned, I actually sewed the front of the vest together, over lapping one side under the other and it fits very well over my head and hangs nicely to my shape.
The moral here is, keep those scraps you have, there is always something to be made from them.
