Upcoming Project... Sewing a Swank 70s Vest for my Moose Man

I'm so excited! As I stated in a post several days ago, I was trying to decide which moose fabric to choose for my hubby and what to make him with it. (See post Holy Manly Moose Fabric! We Like Moose!)

Trent wouldn't go for the 70s poncho (lol) so we settled on this lovely vintage pattern for a bubble vest from the 1970s:

This vest pattern is a size small so I'm going to have to resize it quite a bit.  Additionally, I am doing version B on the right but with the patch pockets which are on the left (if it all works out as planned).

I ordered the following fabrics:

Designed for Elizabeth's Studio, this fabric features a design of grazing moose. The color palette includes brown, blue, tan, grey, black and green. Use for quilting and craft projects.

Trent really liked how realistic this print is.  I have to agree with him.  For the bands, pockets and collar I ordered broadcloth in hunter green:

Cotton Blend Broadcloth Hunter Green

I'm so excited to get started with this project and expect my fabrics to arrive any day now.  What's going to be really interesting about this project is that the pattern includes a quilting guide for quilting the vest.  I have never quilted anything in my life, so we will see how it goes.  Hopefully Trent will end up with all the armholes in his vest.

I should be starting this project this weekend!
