Skylanders Sprocket Cosplay – Vest Part 3

By Monday night I had a complete vest.

Heh.  Those darts look rather silly when laid flat like that, don’t they?  As soon as I realized that I slipped a bra inside to help, erm, fill things out a little. skylanders sprocket vest wip2 02

That’s better… if a little scandalous-looking.

This was where I set it aside for the night.  I wanted to look up armhole finishing techniques, and was unsure if I wanted to do an icord BO/applied icord around the exposed edges, or pick up, knit a few rows and bind off, leaving a curled edge.  It was late, so I decided to sleep on it.
