FABRICS AND NOTIONS
Any sturdy woven fabric can be used- consider home decorating fabrics which are available in many different prints. If using a medium weight fabric, we recommend applying fusible interfacing to the facing pieces and also 1” wide strips on the center fronts. Use a lighter weight one-way separating zipper. The zipper pull is visible, so choose the color of the zipper to be a design accent. If you can’t find the exact length in the color you want, buy a longer zipper.
Fabric yardages are given above.
Also needed: Thread; 14” one-way separating zipper, optional double-sided sew-through basting tape to apply zipper; optional fusible interfacing for facings and center front edges- if 22” wide, 1 1/4 YD.
PLEASE NOTE: This PDF pattern is the same vest as the v-neck version in the SuitAbility paper pattern 4370.

We used this pattern for a costume in one of our productions and my assistant and I both commented on how well constructed and simple it was. Very possible for even a beginning level pattern project. Great product and price!
