Workshop of my Irish vest

Some friends asked me about the stages of making this vest. I didn't put these pictures because I don't like them, they are bad pictures, and don't show the details. I am posting them now because I think maybe they show some stages or give some hints about the stages.

I will explain the stages according to these pictures,
First I have done my own pattern -according my size, and as you see it is flat pattern-has no darts in it; It is the easiest pattern we can make. I have also copied the pattern on a cloth.

Second, I have made the whole motifs of the back and both sides of the vest. then I have sewn the motifs on the cloth, and sewn the group of them together . Also I have located the separated motifs in their own place -according pattern structures.
Of course we sew the motifs their faces downward -as shown in pictures. I also have changed this cord to make it an Irish cord. The original one was simple- just chains with three rows of single crochet. I have made the original one first to get its cauge , then replaced it with mine.

third, the hardiest part-background, I have started to make it from bottom , and made some slip stitches on motif to join them with background. Also please note that the wrong side of background is facing you. It was really hard for me to do this vest because it was my first attempt. I think I should practise with smaller piece of crochet. I still think there are some skills be needed to practise in control with background and motifs. I really still need this.

Anyway, I re-organized these pictures , and put them in my blog to share my small experience with anyone who wants to know how was my adventure.
