The Aftermath Of My Ankara/Fleece Vest, Plus Review Of The M2260 By Cocozini

Welcome To Our First DIY Post, Culled From Cocozini.com

I was at Hancock Fabrics last week picking up some zippers and I came across this pattern. It’s a Mccalls 2260 unlined vest. When I first picked it up, the first thing I saw was that it could be put together within an hour. So out of curiosity with my 4 eyes looking around and rolling like a disco light watching to see that there’s no store associates around, I quickly opened up the pattern for a quick glance at the instructions and right there I knew I could put it together within an hour according to the pattern’s cover.

Though my vest took me over an hour because I added additional fabric (fleece) as the lining and pocket for a little warmth. FYI the pattern doesn’t come with lining.

I will surely be making more in variety of sizes and prints. I do recommend this pattern for beginners. If you can sew a straight line you can put this together. Trust me with this pattern you’re in good hands in Dennis Haysbert All State voice.

The Review Of The M2260

Pattern Description: Mccalls 2260 View B

Fabric Used: I used African print Cotton/Wax blend and Fleece

Pattern Size: Medium

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it ? I think so

Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were very easy to follow.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern ? The pattern is very simple and according to the pattern could be made within and hour.

Pattern alterations or any design you made ? I lined the cotton fabric using fleece, I also used the fleece as the pocket. I turned the back neck, front bodice and the sleeve facing inside out using the fleece. The fleece fabric gave it a bulky look which is what I was going for. I didn’t use the belt in the pattern.

Would you sew it again ? Yes I will sew it again in different varieties trying out different fabrics.

Would you recommend it to others? This is a very easy pattern. If you can sew a straight line, you can easily put this together.

NOTE: I cut 1 piece each of fabric and fleece and serge them together using it as a piece.
