Modkid Annalise Vest

Tuesday, February 14, 2017

There is a new Modkid pattern in the house with a super unique style. I sewed up the vest version of the Modkid Annalise. VEST, you say!?! Yes, this style opens up all the way down for a perfect layering piece. The pattern also includes a summery top version. 

I feel like I need to preface this post with a tiny disclaimer. This particular vest was sewn as a pre-test. Those with a keen sewing eye may notice a few fit issues, but I'm happy to report those have been resolved!! This is why we pre-test and then test some more. Take a look at the Etsy listing for all of the pretty tester photos after the fit was tweaked!

The profile is my favorite part. I love the high/low hem with the dip toward the front! The fabric is Primavera Tile in Teal.

My other favorite part is the opportunity for pretty trims. I think the addition of lace adds a boho vibe to the look. I was able to use some of my vintage eyelet trims for the pattern. Up until this point, I didn't have a vision for what to do with this trim with the slits for threading ribbon through. I struggled with colored or cream ribbon here, but the cream toned the look down after the pop of the bright green snaps.
