I purchased the vintage 1992 pattern from the thrift shop for 25 cents. Then I bought two inexpensive fleece throws for $2.88 each and a zipper for $1 at Walmart. I was going to give it as a gift. But it turned out a little small for the intended receiver, even with all the measurements I took. The pattern had easy to follow directions and the pattern was to size, my measurements were off.
It is very comfortable, and fits me perfectly. Looks like I have a new top to wear around the house and walk the dog in. I would hesitate to wear it to town, since I think the pink might be a little bright for a me in the area I live.
I still enjoyed this project. It gave me experience with a zipper, a new pattern, and more experience sewing. Not to mention something soft and cuddly to wear around the house.

I have not 100% decided on my next project. But I think boxer shorts for Joe are a definite possibility. I just have to find a pattern. I might even sew them with my vintage Kenmore. I put a new belt on and oiled it. It sure runs smooth. I would like to use the stitch cams to make some vintage embellishments.
I do know one thing, a short story on the cams is my next blog.
