I've been wanting to try and make this style of hunting vest for about a year now, but just haven't had the time. This one is a little different than the what I've seen online.
I want it to work as a functional urban foraging vest, so ample storage space is important. Without looking "obvious". Been seeing some pears, apples, and possibly some apricots(!) in the neighborhood recently, so I should be testing the functionality soon.
Ingredients: 12oz indigo chambray duck cloth, 8oz indigo linen/cotton chambray lining, corozo buttons. Single-needle construction throughout with hand-felled seams
New things - a welt chest pocket, full lining (split in the middle to form a pocket), and a belly pocket (poacher pocket). Probably go with a lighter material next time, this one's pretty stiff and the front band is a too thick were multiple layers overlap. Maybe add more curve to the belly pocket opening too.
