Well, this is the final garment of 2016.

A loose-fitting vest is really all this is, but boy oh boy, do I love it!!  The shaping is tapered in at the bottom for a cocoon effect and there are no side seams.

Love this big welt pocket.

I finished the back seam with a Hong Kong finish.  Great instructions included for clean-finishing your facings.

Pattern included for hem facing as well. 

This is a simple pattern, choose a lovely fabric (this is a wool suiting from my stash) with nice drape.  The facing fabric here is Bemberg lining, but you can eliminate it altogether if you wish.

A great layering piece, dress is up or down!

Stay warm everyone!
