A couple days ago I went to the local 100 yen store (like a dollar store), and picked up some fabric and buttons. This is a purple corduroy cotton and the lining is 100% poly.
I used two pieces of fabric from the store, 200 yen there, plus 6 buttons, another 100 yen, as well as one pack of (horrible) interfacing. The belt buckle in the back was from a closing sale at a fabric store and also cost around 100 yen when I bought it. I don't tend to count the cost of thread.
Over all there is about 500 yen (5 dollars) in this vest.
Took me maybe two or three hours to make, not bad at all if I do say so myself.
