I am happy to introduce the next pattern in my fall/winter 2015 lineup…the GLACIER VEST! It is on sale for $5.50 until September 24.
The Glacier Vest is a versatile accessory that is perfect for every day wear as well as dress up. Sew it up in faux fur for a dramatic fashion statement, or in minky fleece for a warm second layer.
This vest is fully lined, and features a ribbon tie closure (view A) or toggle button (view B). The cropped length is a trendy cut and ends at the natural waist. The instructions include tips for working with faux fur.
I’ve included layers in my pattern so that you can print only the size you need. As well, my unique layout allows you to choose to trim, or no trim! The pattern pieces are computer drawn and each step in the tutorial includes a detailed illustration.
This pattern is rated as an advanced beginner level. The design itself is simple, but faux fur can be difficult to sew with. Hint: the shorter the pile (fibres) of the fur, the easier it is to work with.
