John’s Vest, originally uploaded by plainsight.

I just mailed this vest off today, it’s for the son of a friend of mine in Princeton. It’s made with two strands of Cotton-Ease and I used the measurements from a vest in Candi Jensen’s Candy Tots, but I didn’t follow her pattern which turned out to be a good thing–when I was taking a look at how she did her shaping, I realized, there were no armholes in the front if you followed her pattern to the letter!

I actually really like this book, and her other book Candy Babies because of how they are laid out. Each pattern has a sketch with very good measurements which means if you want to stray from the pattern, but still make the garment the right size, it’s very easy to do.
