McCall's 7695 - Quilted Vest with Pfaff Creative Icon Embroidered Faux Suede Yoke

Normal temps for this time of year are in the low 50's but not this year, we did get above freezing today.  That good news with that is I went outside and took pictures of my newly completed vest.

I bought this fabric about a year ago and was determined to get it sewn this winter and I just made it.  Thanks to Mother Nature she has kept winter around.  The fabric is sold out,
Style Maker Fabrics' Plush Quilted Coating and it is some really nice, nice fabric.

I bought enough for a coat but I really have plenty of winter coats.  Contemplating what to make delayed the sewing of this fabric.  My thoughts turned to a vest but I wanted a bit of contrast and embellishment on my vest.  The pattern selected was McCall's 7695 and I went with view C.  The contrast yoke is faux suede from Mood and the embellishment is all from Pfaff Creative Icon.

Here is a close up of the back yoke

I embroidered the front and back yokes and then turned under 1/4 inch at the bottom and topstitched the yoke right onto the quilted fabric.  I used the shape creator feature on Pfaff Creative Icon, see my Instagram Highlights to see how it works.  I also used a built in design to finish off the embellishment.  Here is the embroidery design from the book which comes with the Creative Icon, it is the bottom one.







I stitched out the design twice for the front, then placed them right side together matching the design.

I made a size 12 and the fit is good.  I did not put in side seam pockets, this mostly due to the fact I didn't have any fabric that would look good.  My concern was you might see the pockets from the side seams and nothing in my stash would work.  The lining is a twill in dark brown, an unusual choice but worked well with heavier quilted fabric.  One thing I would do is measure the vest front and then buy the zipper.  I had to get another zipper, which really was okay, it matches better than the other one.

I did understitch the neckline and then did some edgestitching at the bottom of the vest and the arms, only on the quilted portion.

I love my new vest and the weather will be good for the next few weeks to wear my vest.
