Simplicity 8640 from 1978 sewing pattern for men's pullover top and vest. The shirts have set in sleeves and a v-neck, with neck and waist bands, and can be made with either short or long sleeves. The vest has armhole, neck, and waist bands.
Suitable for midweight stretch knits, such as cotton knits, terrycloth, velour, or sweater knits. There are a lot of beautiful sweater knits on the market these days that would work very well. Buy extra fabric if you'll want to match plaids, stripes, or one-way designs.
Size "N"—38 (chest 38" waist 32"), 40 (chest 40" waist 34"), or 42 (chest 42" waist 36"). Any of these sizes requires only 1.5 yds of fabric.
This original Y1978 pattern is uncut and factory folded. The envelope is worn, but the pattern is clean and pristine. It comes to you in an archival acid-free clear sleeve for protected storage.
I check each pattern carefully to be sure it’s as described, but of course if you’re not happy, please let me know—I’ll fix it! If you have any questions, just ask.
