When the Spring Simplicity patterns were released I was immediately drawn to this one for the shape of the top.
A year ago I made a version of this vest and it got plenty of wear, so it was time to make up another- with a slight twist
In my work life, there is a single constant – professional garb. Trousers, button-down shirts, and jackets have been my wardrobe staples. But times have changed – workplaces are more casual.
