Jason Variation

Added Feb 20, 2012

By burdastyle

New York, New Yo...






David’s variation of the Jason vest.

We removed the pointed front and gave the vest a straight cut. We skipped the buttons, pockets and the back adjustment strap to give the vest a clean and minimalistic look (incidentally also making the project a lot faster and easy to sew).

For fabric we used a painter’s canvas drop cloth and a printed cotton fabric for a fun lining.

Material Notes

1 3/8 yds, 1.15 m of main fabric as well as lining.




Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter
Garment Type
Cotton, Denim, Flannel, Shirting, Silk, Suiting, Wool

    Simpler, but I find a little bit short!!

      The pattern actually comes longer, but we cropped it because I wanted it a bit shorter than normal. You could definitely make it longer, though :)
