Marcy's Vest

 Marcy's new vest. I really like it. She said to make it one size smaller then you would usually do. I would of made a large, but made a medium. I am glad that I did.
 This is some polar fleece 100 I ordered from Marcy. It is so soft. I just love it.
It took a little to figure out how it goes together. It is very clever. I made a mistake and the cross seams were suppose to be french seams to the outside. With this heavier fabric it looks good with topped stitch seams. There wasn't a problem with raveling, so I didn't need to serge. I would like to make it in a linen. I am thinking I would even make it smaller and be sure to put the french seams to the outside. When I went to put the hooks on, it took a while to realize that the cross seams were not suppose to match in the front. The bottom edge is suppose to hang down farther on one side then the other.

It's amazing.

 Can't believe that spring is here already in California. I wish I could give some of it to the snow countries.
