You’re in luck, I have one for this pattern! (or just scroll down for written instructions)


Step 1:  Assembling pattern and cutting out pattern pieces.

Trim the pattern pieces around the gray boxes, line up the A, B, C and D dots.  Tape pattern together and cut out the size needed.

Fold the fabric in half and cut out 2 front pieces.  Cut out 1 back piece.



Step 2:  Sew the vest.

Right sides together, line up the shoulder seams and side seams.  Sew using a 3/8 inch seam allowance.


Trim shoulder and side seams to 1/8 inch.  Fold seam to one side and topstitch with a decorative/faux coverstitch type stitch.

Tip:  If your fabric is different colors on the front/back, use two different colored threads to match the top and bottom fabric.


That’s it, you’re done!

As always, if you sew something from one of my tutorials or patterns I would love to see it!  Be sure to come back and share a photo on my facebook page or tag me on Instagram @scatteredmom, with #scatteredmompatterns!
