I decided to make a few linen garments back in March, since I’m living in Brunei, and linen is a wonderful option in tropical high humidity heat. I was heading off to Paris to meet with Marcy and katherine Tilton (and a good kiwi friend), for a week of fashion and fun. So I made Marcy’s vest pattern, very funky and quirky lines, deliberately falling in whimsy ways!
The pictures here show the vest straight out of my suitcase, and it stood up very well during packing. I love this vest!
I can wear ANY colour under this garment. Great with jeans, black pants or linen pants.
I did not line the collar band but certainly will the next time, because unless I have the buttons done up to the top, the band flops open and you can see the inside, not that it matters with linen, the print almost comes through .
