This is McCalls 2260. I made this as another layering piece for the office. I've recently changed jobs, and my new office is like the frozen north year round. While this vest isn't really a warming piece per say, sometimes several extra layers go a long way. Plus, when I get outside to the real weather, I need to quickly shed layers (it's Houston, as a rule, we don't have real cold weather here!).
This was a very easy piece to make. This is from some of the last fabric purchasing I bought at Fabric.com back in July. I actually used it for what it was intended for!! I did leave off the pockets and the buttons. I won't use the pockets nor will I ever button this up. So it just seemed like a waist of time to add them. I love this stretch twill. I think the only thing I would change next time is to raise the armsycle up. It's almost to baggy. Almost. Definitely not something that will prevent me from wearing it.
