The Assembly Line Cap Sleeve Vest is a great piece for layering with an easy fit for many body types. It works as a vest, jacket, cardigan, blazer and more. It has a straight shape, features hidden front pockets with large flaps and snap buttons for closing at the front. The pattern includes both a lined and an unlined version. You can sew an easier version of the vest by skipping the lining and perhaps use sew-on snap buttons, or no buttons, for the first one.
The paper pattern is a multi-size pattern and comes in two size ranges; XS-L or XL-3XL. Kindly choose a suitable size range based on your body measurements using the size guide. The pattern comes carefully packaged in an envelope along with a printed booklet with step-by-step sewing instructions. Seam allowances are included in the pattern.
