Foundation and paper piecing --- something I never have gotten used to. Ms. Doak teaches you how to use foundation piecing to create reversible vests. Her explanations are detailed enough to cover everything but easy enough to follow.
Color selection, basics and working with strips are the beginning sections and give you a firm idea of where to begin. Paper piecing block instructions come next, followed by how to combining the strips and blocks. A section on embellishing the materials used will given you ideas of how to add extra sparkle to the vest. Of course, the next section covers how to assemble the whole project. There are plenty of graphics throughout for those of use who are better at visuals than words.
There are a dozen vest patterns in the book. Each pattern has three colorways. All of the paper pieced block templates are given at full size. The final section is a tear-out of the actual vest pattern.
All in all, you get everything you need, instruction-wise, to make these vests. Make one for yourself or several to give as gifts.
