Open Sided Crochet Vest


Open side vests are obviously a thing now, so we simply had to make one. Eva insisted to make her a "plain" vest, meaning I was to use just half /double crochet stitches for it, but I knew she wanted to spare me from working on a more textured pattern. However, if I was to invest time and effort into a piece she so desperately wanted, I wouldn't let myself make her something plain. 
So, I used the "V" stitch for it, and we both agreed it was an interesting and playful pattern for this vest. 
Though, if you ask me, I would definitely make the next one as a regular vest. I was itching to sew the sides of this one :)

Wow Maya, you made such a beautiful looking vest. The open sides are interesting looking. Eva looks so pretty in it and I know she will love wearing it.

It is very beautiful this way! Buttons would also look nice on it, but then it wouldn't be as open, right? Eva looks gorgeous, as always. :-)

Thank you Julie! She loves it and that makes all the effort worth it!

Yes, buttons would be an interesting touch. I evem suggested having ties at the sides, but she didn't like that idea either.
