Itch to Stitch Envigado vest, my version, got maybe a bit too much body for summer but I'm sure it will come in useful.  Relatively easy to do as well, although I added a lining.

Very nice - you seem to be particularly good at that sort of garment - remembering your recent jacket.

Probably a thing I have with zips, love them.  I've bought another Waffle pattern for later this year, a  coat that she has altered to accommodate a zip, I've already got the fabric, getting it  done before next winter, well maybe.

It's really nice. Something I never think to make is outerwear.  Yours is lovely.

Jessie, who is very happy to be here!!  :),  but who has far too many sewing machines to be healthy, and a fabric stash which is becoming embarrassing.

That's lovely @Gernella . You will find it really useful.

@Gernella did you shorten it? I have some reversible red/blue softshell so will be making another one soon and will try and get the length so I can put the waist draw string in this time.
It's not easy being this perfekt

I knocked around a good two inches off @sewmuchmore and then dropped the band so it just hits above the pocket flap. I'm only 5'3", well I was but I know you shrink when you get older.  Trouble is I don't wear trousers and most of my skirts are quite colourful and patterned, plain might have been a better fabric to use. :S

Wow I love this.
It is my favourite colour and looks so comfortable.
