Pattern Description: Misses/Men's Unlined Vest and Jackets. I made view B

Pattern Sizing: S-L, I made a size small. The pattern is in men sizes so for women it runs large.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes with the exceptions of the modifications I made.

Were the instructions easy to follow? They were easy enough.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved that it had a chest pocket, but didn't like using velcro with fleece so I added a zipper.

Fabric Used: Blizzard Fleece and Nylon Ripstop

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I overlaid ripstop on the yoke to give it a different look. I created a back yoke to continue the look to the back. I also added an exposed zipper over the chest pocket opening, instead of the velcro.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I made this one for one of my sisters. I am going to be making another for my other sister with the same alteration but different colors..

Conclusion: Easy to make and looks very nice.

Buy this pattern for $13.00  List Price: $16.25   Add to Bag Add to Bag
