Rip, Rip, Rip, this is what I am considering right now.  Last week I highlighted a lacy vest I was working on, with the promise to finish it and show it off on this week’s blog.  Last night, as I completed the boarder around the neck and shoulders, I felt accomplished.  Trying it on for my husband, he looked puzzled.  “I’ve never seen other people wear something like that,” he told me.  I reminded him that this vest was probably not in his Esquire Magazine, and he agreed that he was clueless on women’s fashion.

But then I did something I am regretting.  I looked back at the vest pattern, and the front photo of the model.  Uh oh, in one of my tired, flighty states I had misread the pattern.  The frilly boarder that I attached to the front of the vest flaps to create a ruffled look should have been created along the bottom edge.  How could I miss that!

To tell the truth, I was a little self conscious that the vest wouldn’t “give” around my torso.  I think my subconscious was telling me to make more room and without knowing it I misread the pattern on purpose.  I like the vest, it will be super cute this summer with a tank top and shorts or a skirt.

What do you think?  Should I keep the frill?  I haven’t blocked it yet, and there are plenty of loose ends to work in too.  I’m leaning on keeping it like this.  At least then I can say it is one of a kind!

I will post completed photos when everything is blocked.

Happy crocheting!
