I made this vest for Mr Rat as a Christmas gift last year. The pattern is McCall 2447, which is still in print. The instructions are clear and easy enough to follow. Mr R's vest is a size medium and fits well through the shoulders, although I think I could have taken in the sides a little more for a slimmer fit around the waist. Mr Rat says he is quite happy with it, but if you plan on making this pattern, I would advise making a muslin or at least measuring it and comparing it at the waist and ribs to decide on what size or combination of sizes you want to use. The fabric is a piece of wool tweed that I bought at a church rummage sale in Pasadena some years back. It is fully lined in olive green.
