I live in a cold climate and I find that a vest over a l knit top or blouse is more comfortable than a bulky sweater. This vest is a very pretty light green, it is light but warm, and it washes nicely. I think I'm going to enjoy it this winter.
The vest itself is cute and seems to be average quality (won't fall apart immediately, but isn't bomb-proof either), and the stitching adds a nice touch. It fits nice excpet is a little snug around my chest (I ordered a M and am a 36C), so I imagine a L would fit better in the chest, but then would likely be too big everywhere else. I don't want to pay for more shipping, though, because for that price I could have gotten something really nice from **** or the like. So I'm going to keep it and will just have to wear it under thinner shirts. Oh, also, the pocket openings are kind of small, so my hands don't really fit in there comfortably.
I somehow managed to miss the fact that this was a pattern and not a vest when I placed the order making this an even better purchase than I had anticipated. This way I can make my own bests and size them the way I want.
