Black Weaver's Cloth Vest

Added Jul 6, 2012

by zsyzu

Placentia, Calif...






I used 1 and a half yards of weaver’s cloth to make this vest. I like this fabric because it’s so easy to work with and wear. I used Simplicity’s 4079 vest pattern.

I see men wearing vests with t-shirts and they look so cool. It just looks sharp without trying too hard. I just couldn’t resist making one that’s cut to flatter a woman’s figure. Surprise, the fit is so flattering I can’t wait to find the perfect moment to wear it.

Material Notes

1.5 yards weaver’s cloth, thread, 4 button, one 3/4 inch buckle




Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter

    Cute, I made one that looks like yours…I have to post some pictures. Glenville Hugues is right, wear it whenever you want. I wear mine with t-shirt and jeans or with a cute dress.

      Thank you! I tried my vest on with a pair of jeans and thought it was nice to wear anywhere. I can’t wait to see yours when you post it.
