“This vest was inspired by a Vivienne Westwood Anglomania top. It’s a great piece for fall because it can be worn alone on warmer days or layered over another shirt when chilly. I used Vogue 8385 to construct the top and drafted an L-shaped peplum pattern to better resemble the designer original. I carefully lined up the plaid cotton fabric and added a row of covered buttons to the front. My favorite part is that the inside is completely finished with rayon lining, so it looks just as nice as the outside.”
