Purple corduroy vest

I feel like such a loser sometimes. I recently stumbled upon my pile of UnFinished Objects and there were plenty of things I started and never finished. This vest was one of them. It was nearly done, only a few seems and the buttonholes were missing. It was literally less than 30 minutes work, I have no idea why I never did the finishing touches...

The lapels and the full vest is lined with lovely dotted viscose:

It looks great and I'm very glad that I have a new piece for my fall wardrobe now!

Wie schön <3 hach, ich mag Westen. Ich hab zwar keine Einzige, aber vielleicht sollte ich das endlich mal ändern :-D

Ich musste beim Umzug feststellen, dass alle meine Ufos eine komplette Kommodenschublade einnehmen, also du bist nicht allein ;-)
Die Weste gefällt mir, die Farbe macht sich super. Und wenn ich so auf das Wetter schiele war es wohl der ideale Zeitpunkt, sie fertigzunähen.
lg, ette

Ooh, nice! I always love the little surprise of a fun colored lining. And it's a perfect vest for fall. :)

That is a beautiful colour and style! It looks like it'd add a bit of warmth too, which is great for colder weather! Gorgeous work!

@ Ms Misantropia: Who doesn't love Tiramisu?

@ Nachtkatze: Dankesehr! Und wenn du das Projekt Weste in Angriff nimmst, kann ich bestimmt noch ne menge lernen...

@ ette: Bei mir wird es nur leider eher mehr als weniger... *oops* Aber stimmt, glückliche konnte der Zeitpunkt der Fertigstellung nicht fallen!

@ Bane: I hope so, I just love the feel of corduroy!

@ Laura Morrigan: It is warm enough to wear it with a shirt outside right now. But I guess it also layers well, we will see!
