Time for Seaming

I blocked the front of the vest a couple of nights ago and I am now ready to do the seaming. I love this vest, but I think I made it a size too big. I must admit that I barely glanced at the finished measurements, assuming that a size large would fit a chest size of 42/44 when the pattern says that a large would fit a 44/46. What was I thinking? I guess I am just used to making things for myself and not others! So, I may try to do a little creative shrinking/felting in the washing machine and dryer. Wish me luck!
