First: What's the funny name about?
The tan vest is a beautiful wool and camel hair blend (thanks to my friends at Fabrications,http://www.fabricationsonline.com/) with a cotton damask back and silk lining. The striped vest is a coat weight wool (great for east coast winters) with a black denim back and cotton lining.
When my son was around at Christmas time we picked out some spring combinations and I made a natural colored linen version for him for his birthday. (February!)
2. Prepare the fronts with pockets, if you like. Prepare the front facing/lining assemblies. With RST (right sides together) stitch the fronts to the facing/linings, leaving the side and shoulder seams unstitched. Trim, turn and press the fronts. Prepare the back, I like a waist belt, and the back lining pieces.
Tuck the front points into the sandwich bag and pin the backs together all the way around.
Stitch the 'bag' together being careful to catch the fronts only at the shoulders and side seams. Leave a 4" opening in one side seam for turning. Check to see that nothing is caught up in the seams before the next step....you'll thank me...
7. Pull the fronts through the side seam opening, press and slip stitch.
