Additional Notes

This PDF sewing pattern includes all pattern pieces and step-by-step instructions with illustrations.

I love my new vest, it has lots of great features.

The instructions confused me a bit when it was explaining how to attach the front facing, but after reading them several times and consulting with a sewing buddy I was able to figure it out with no problem. The vest is not graded out at the hips, so unless you're a straight up and down lady, then expect for the bottom to fit snugly... OR you can grade them out yourself... OR you can just stop the zipper a few inches above the hem like I did =)

Wonderful pattern that I will use many times!
