This listing is for the download of a PDF sewing pattern to make a girl’s western show vest in Girls Sizes 2-16 (see sizing chart above). It is NOT for a physical paper pattern. The vest is unlined with a classic v-neck. It is hip length with a zippered front, princess seams, and a close fit.
The photos is of a vest made by a SuitAbility customer using a previous version of this pattern and is not for sale. Modifications and embellishments were done by the customer and are not included in the pattern (this pattern does not have vest points like the vest in the photo but has a straight hem).

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: One-way separating zipper- Sizes 2-6: 10", Sizes 8-16: 12"; thread; optional double-sided sew-through basting tape to apply zipper; optional fusible interfacing for facings and center front edges- if 22" wide, 3/4 YD.
PLEASE NOTE: This PDF pattern is the same vest as the v-neck version in SuitAbility paper version Pattern 4370.
