Looks great!!! And OUCH!!! I have done that SOOOO many times for the same reasons. lol, in the end sometimes I kick myself and ask, why didn't I just stop being lazy and take the thing apart so I don't kill my hands?!Owlfeathers, I don't know which book it's from.
I finished my pants finally. The knee pads don't look like they are in the right place in this photo, but when I put them on, it's right. Although I sewed the horizontal quilting on the knee pads on the machine, I didn't want to take the pants apart and had to sew the pads onto the pants by hand and it was really awkward, and I kept stabbing myself. :lol

I have a theory that the vest is made of handwoven fabric after washing. It results in a "chevron" look, which would match up with the "herringbone" pattern we've seen in the blurry pics previously, and accounts for the thread detail you can see in these high-res pics.Now, these pics don't have me convinced that the fabric is herringbone!
Looking at those pics as well it looks like the edge of the shirt underneath the vest is raw with a blanket stitch. And I am 100% convinced that the vest edges are finished with a blanket stitch detail.Now, these pics don't have me convinced that the fabric is herringbone!
