When I was browsing the web the other day I came across this free pattern and tutorial.
It called the Central Park Swing Coat and here is my version.
I made it out of brown suede one side and the same fabric I used for this project for the other side.
It does look rather like the example from the site I got the pattern from
but at least I knew it would look good :)
When I sewed the buttons on I sewed them on so tightly that I couldn't get them through the buttonhole. I had to unpick them an sew them on loosely so they would go through.
This was a good little project especially with the free pattern.
It is a suitable vest to wear over a t-shirt or long sleeve top as the weather gets a little cooler.
