Pintucked flannel vest tutorial on SewStylish

Come on, admit it: You’ve got an old flannel shirt in your closet collecting dust right now. Well, shake it off and get sewing—turn that shirt into a cute vest. On the SewStylish blog, I’ll show you how to do it. I cut the collar and the sleeves off of the shirt below, created new patch pockets, and added rows of pretty tucks to take in the extra bulk.
