You can dress it up or down. Every boy should have a vest in their closet. And this pattern is fantastic. Like, really, really good. It has all the classic vest features: fully lined, optional back ties, welt pockets (faux or real).
What I like most about Sew Much Ado patterns is that I always, always learn something new in them. They’re like mini sewing lessons, not just patterns. Abby, the designer, knows her sewing stuff and it’s like I’m getting one-on-one instruction when I read her patterns. I’ve made vest before. I liked how they turned out. But with this vest, the way you do the lining is just so cool. I would never have figured out her technique on my own, but I am never using anything different now.
But at least they look good doing…whatever they are doing.
