I first made this long knit waistcoat as a gift for my sister and planned to make one for myself. (previously blogged here). It only took me a year to get around to it!
Back to the waistcoat….the version I originally made for my sister was in a knit boucle, a much better fabric choice than this one in a very soft sweater knit which stretched like crazy! I had put the pockets in, but they ended up somewhere near my knees and were quite bulky so I removed them. I also had to trim the collar down considerably and you can see that the hem is wavy also. I might fold it up again and see if that helps.
This really should have been a quick and easy project, but ended up being incredibly frustrating to make. It is great for our current in between weather though so I am trying to forget all the annoyances!
