Item details


This is a versatile pattern for boys and girls. This vest is perfect for the cold days, it is fully lined with high collar, welt pockets and it closes with a zipper. You can even make this vest reversible by using a reversible zipper!

You can make this vest with or without pockets, this tutorial includes the instructions to make welt pockets but you easily can skip those and add a different type of pocket instead; such as patch pocket or flap pocket (this are not included in this pattern).

The version without pocket is very simple to sew and makes it a good project for beginners, while the version with pockets requires more sewing skills, and is more suitable for an intermediate sewer.

The PDF file includes:

- Tutorial: A step-by-step tutorial with easy and clear instructions and color photos. The tutorial will guide you on how to cut the pieces of fabric and how to sew the them.

- Pattern: It includes the fully scaled color-coded computer drafted pattern. The pattern should be printed into 21 sheet A4/Letter size, this pdf pattern provides clear nstructions on how to assemble those pages.

- Table of final measurements

To make this vest you will need:
- sewing machine
- fabric (1/2 to 3/4 yards of main fabric and 1/2 to 3/4 yards of lining)
- thread of matching color
- 1 open-end zipper (13 to 20 inches long depending on the size you are sewing)
- scissors and pins


- Please read carefully the description, you are purchasing a PDF SEWING PATTERN AND NOT THE FINISHED PRODUCT.

- Pattern assembly is required. It is drafted in pieces so that it can be printed on standard letter size paper, then you will have to assemble as directed in the instructions.

- A 1/4 inch seam allowance is included in the pattern. So you just place it over the fabric and cut along the edges of the pattern.

Thank you for providing the wonderful pictures for those of us that aren't seasoned seamstresses. Pattern was great and vest took a short time to make.
