Working on Lace Vest from Vogue Knitting Mag

Since the beginning of this month, I have been working on a lace vest that was in the Vogue Knitting Spring/Summer '11 magazine.  I'm using Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece yarn.  The border and base ribbing is in a lovely Sedona Red while the lace body is Terracotta Canyon.  

As you can see it's knitted in one piece (both fronts and back) including the button bands.  Sweet!  

I'm knitting the buttonholes using the one row horizontal technique that I found on the Vogue Knitting website.  I like this technique as it looks neat and everything is done on one row and then I can move on. 

Here's a close up of the lace pattern:
