Women’s plus size vest sewing pattern available for download. Available in various sizes.

The many metal zips and topstiching give this fitted vest in white leather a skilfully created shabby style.

Recommended Materials

Soft stretch leather or imitation leather.

Amount of Fabrics

Stretch nappa leather. To make this style in size 44, you will need 5 ­leather skins with a total of approx. 40 sq. ft. (1 sq. ft. = 30 × 30 cm). Please ask your leather dealer about larger sizes since leather skins can vary great­ly. We recommend you take the paper pattern with you when purchasing the leather.

    After seeing the designs that are shown under the plus size category on this site, my misconception about the fact that there are no good designs for plus size persons were cleared. I think there are some cool designs which we won’t get to see in stores. clip in man bun

    I love this pattern but am a size 38. Would it be difficult to grade down from plus size 44? kindly inform.

    40 sq ft sounds wrong for this pattern — could someone confirm that it’s correct?

    Also, I’d like to make this using fabric rather than leather — are there fabric amounts listed in the pattern for the fashion fabric?
