Another vest crawling to completion - L

I'm also working on a vest.  This one without a pattern.  I used advice for measurements from a couple of online 'free' patterns.  I tried my first single welt pocket and a 'cheater' collar (which means the fabric at the front V is self lined and folded over).

Here is the pocket in progress, and here is the vest partly done.  I've got the armholes and side seams done and just need to finish the shoulders, center front and hem.  Then buttonholes.  Haven't done a buttonhole since I was 15.  Sort of scary.  I will be practicing on spare fabric.  Wish me luck!
