I added three more buttons than called for in the pattern. No one needs to see my grandmotherly navel.
Nicole Vest (pattern by Bonne Marie Burns for "Chic Knits").
For size 36.5 (with added length) I used almost 4 balls (50g each) of James C. Brett "Kool Kotton", 50% cotton/50% acrylic, machine washable DK.
Knitpicks circular needles in sizes 3.25mm and 3mm.
Modifications: Added one inch to the length.
Changes I would make if I knit this again: I would add the one inch above the row of waist eyelets instead of just above the bottom lace edging. This would make the eyelet row sit more at my waist than slightly above it. I would also add about 1/2 an inch to the shoulder straps so that the underarm was slightly lower.
