Strange cut, too big

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Anne from Upstate New York on Thursday, May 31, 2012
I ordered this hoping the other reviews were extreme, but no, this vest is cut very strangely. It is enormous from the waist through the hips, and because the fabric is canvas, it sticks out from the sides very unattractively. If I were 8 months pregnant, it would fit me well. I was going to return it for a smaller size, but those sizes weren't available anymore. I am still looking at it, deciding whether to take it to a seamstress to be altered. The chest area is the right size, and probably it could be taken in on the bottom half. The price was great, so if I can find a way to make it work for a minimal expense, I'll keep it.
