Man of the the house could not understand how a circle could turn into a sleevless vest so I put it up against myself and he said I looked like a turtle from the back! It is coming along very quickly but I am completely off the pattern now scribbling little notes in a pretty notebook inbetween wrapping it around myself.
Progress so far:

The longer pieces at the top go under your armpits and then I need to make a back panel to go on the straight edge. Getting excited...
