Vogue 1375 Wool Knit Vest - Sandra Betzina Design
I was going through old photos on my computer and came across a few makes that I took photos of yet never blogged about. This knit vest is one of them. I sewed this in 2016 or 2017, I don't remember for sure.
The fabric is a lightweight, embroidered wool knit that I purchased from SR Harris. I remember I was drawn to the textured detail of the fabric. I liked it enough that I overlooked the fact that those colors are not colors I normally wear.
That meant I sewed this beautiful vest only to have it sit in my closet as nothing worked with it. I'm trying to be more thoughtful in my fabric purchases as I don't wish to spend time (and money!) sewing a lovely item only to end up donating it because it does not get worn.
Here's the back view. I put a note on the pattern envelope to keep the pattern because the instructions for sewing the lined yoke are really good.
The pattern is Vogue 1375, a Sandra Betzina design from 2013. Back when almost all of us were wearing these flowy knit cardigans and vests.
I sewed one for my girlfriend last year in a slinky black knit. I know I took photos of it before I shipped it off to her so I will have to look for those and write another post.
