Lovely pattern. It is a bit detailed but that adds to the beauty of it. You would have to pay attention making this vest but I like that it comes in one piece. I like the extra layer of a vest. I will probably do this in a solid color to show off the detail. This is on my list. Thank you.

Love it!! I would wear a pair of white capri pants and a white tank top!!

I would probably wear it with a skirt.

I love making vests -- will surely use this pattern. Would wear it with t-shirt and jeans in spring or fall or a nice short-sleeved blouse and skirt, with turtle-neck in winter.

I would wear this with a nice pair of summer dress pants:)

Love this look would wear it with jut about anything.

I get hot easy. This is a pretty vest that I would wear in the spring with a nice short sleeved blouse as pictured minus the ruffles.

This is a very nice vest. I can picture wearing it with a long sleeve sweater in any colour. Of course the sweater would have to be a little form fitting to show the vest to it's best advantge!

I like the style and it looks like it would look good on just about everyone.

Love the general design, but wish the picture did it better justice. Flattering style for most any figure.

Arms have to be covered, but a nice sheer sleeved blouse would surely do. Couple that with a lovely, flowy long skirt and you have a soft, romantic looking outfit for day or evening!

I love SweaterBabe's patterns. I do blieve I would wear a long sleeve blouse under this vest, bcause I tend to b cold blooded. A pair of skinny jeans with knee high boots! Love it!

This is a really cute vest pattern. I would wear it unbutton.

This vest would be great with skirts, jeans or dressier slacks. Just change the top/blouse underneath and you're good to go.

Love this vest! I have a couple lightweight blouses I could wear this with. Will be saving this pattern for a future project!

I have two lightweight shirts that this would go great with. Pattern saved for when I've finished current projects :)

Love the pattern, downloaded to make for myself

This is a really cute pattern, I am almost finished making it and it has a lacy effect at the bottom, a quick knit that is best because it is knit with almost no seaming. Very fun!

I really like this vest. I have worn vests off and on for years now.. they look great with a long sleeved white shirt and jeans. they look great with skirts, I like to wear vests to work, they just have a way of dressing up a outfit..

It is a super vest to wear with mostly anything. You can even use double glitter yarn and make a lovely vest for special occasions

I love vests and especially this one. They really help keep the chill away anytime of the year. I live in Colorado where it is cold now and wish I had a vest like this one to slip over my long sleeve sweaters and give them added warmth. I will eagerly knit this one since I know SweaterBabe designs patterns that are easy to follow and are well designed with just an extra bit of styling that makes them unique.

I'd wear this with jeans and a blouse all year.

I've been looking for a good vest pattern. I like the detailing on this one.

Love the pattern . For my weight & style I would make it a wee bit longer & wear with a long sleeve top. It looks comfortable but dressy.could be worn all year round in neutral colour to match all. Thank you for placing it to be done.

I would wear it in any season. A light T top and shorts or skirt in summer, a heavier top and jeans or slacks in spring and fall, and maybe even over a light sweater and jeans in the winter.

As warm as it is here in the summer, I would only wear it with a very light tee shirt and a pair of cotton or linen pants.

I love hippie skirts!! I have them in so many styles and colors... mostly tie-dye, and this vest would top any one of them awesomely. I could make one in several colors.. and I think it would look great in a lightweight yarn for spring/summer! Over a tank, over a tee, or even a long sleeved shirt - I think it could even wear well with jeans or capris!

I have a t- shirt with ruffle cap sleeves that would go great with this vest.

A light colored v neck blouse, maybe with ruffles, and light colored skirt, below knee length.

Cut. The length is nice.

I see this vest as a versatile piece worn with all sleeve lengths and neck shapes. For summer however, I would wear a lightweight flowing tank top under it and leave the vest unbuttoned over a gauzy broomstick skirt to create a breezy cool effect.

It is a timeless, yet innovative style that will be worn for years and will make a perfect spring project.

I would wear this vest over a short sleeved top in the fall and spring and a 3/4 sleeve length in the winter months (I love 3/4 sleeve length tops!) when the weather turns colder. This vest would be so versatile for year round wear! I definitely need to try this pattern.

Perfect for dressing up jeans and a t-shirt!

I'd love to wear it over a long sleeve tee shirt dress, or jeans and man's shirt. I can see it for spring golf too!

I would wear this vest with a turtleneck or long sleeved shirt and jeans for dress down times, and a nice pair of dress slacks and dressy shirt for dress up times. It's a really cute vest!

I picture the vest knit in a summer worsted weight yarn. I will wear it over a 3 quarter length T shirt, a flowery broomstick skirt and some strappy sandals.

Very attractive vest. Will go with many outfits a very versitle addition to any wardrobe

It's a nice vest....fitted and can be worn over long, short sleeved tops...looks great with the white jeans for summer!
