Always Time to Buy Fabric

I was in the city on my lunch break recently, and found the Tessuti fabric store by accident. I think if you are a fabricaholic, fabric comes to you.

I purchased enough of this Japanese cotton fabric (my heart goes out to those people at the moment) to make a short boxy jacket, but as it is very busy (that's a 50 cent Australian coin in the above photo), I am thinking more along these lines:

 I have this vest pattern already and it is Kwik Sew 3619. They also show this version on their website, without the ties, made in one fabric and with button closures:

I think I am going to be able to sew over the Easter break, or sooner if I can spend a couple of afternoons working on my certificate course for work and get that out of the way. That's the plan anyway...

oh that fabric is gorgeous! I always avoid the street that the Tessuti store is on in Sydney because I know I'll never walk out empty handed....

Will you make contrast bands or slf fabric ones? That detail may get lost in the print of the fabric and pattern matching might be difficult if you made the bands from the fabric. Although some piping would be cool too. Sorry, don't mean to complicate things, just thinking out loud!

I'm looking forward to seeing the finished vest!
