Designing, Sewing, & Making Vests

How to make a Vest

Here's the vest from the winning 2 piece design on Season Four of Project RUNWAY!!!

About Vests - Sewing and Making vest are quite easy.  They can be long or short and can be made as an accessory to compliment one's outfit, or made to be useful, like a men's outdoor work vest made of flannel with the inside being lined of lambs wool for warmth.
Best Fabric to use - Just about any fabric can be used to make vests. Some suggestions are: light weight cotton, denim, corduroy, light weight wool, wool blends, silk, rayon, and velvet. Wool blends, rayon, and velvet work best if the vest pattern requires a lining.
Easy type Pattern - An easy vest pattern would be like the one shown above.  It only has 2 pattern pieces, a back which is placed on the fold, and a front pattern piece that you cut two of.
Difficult type Pattern - A more difficult vest pattern might be one that requires pockets and lining.
Pattern Pieces -     Vests can have any where from 2 to about 8 pattern pieces. Two pattern pieces being the easiest vest to make.
Cost & Fabric Usage -  Short vests to the waistline require little fabric (probably about 1 yard) but usually require lining too which will be yet another yard of the same fabric or contrasting fabric depending on the "look" you are trying to get.
Comments - A vest makes a nice accessory to dresses or tops and is fashionable at times. It is a great garment piece to begin sewing for success.

It is often fashionable to wear a vest whether a long sweater vest down to the knees or a short leather vest to the waistline. Vests can be hung open or closed with some type of closure like buttons, or a zipper.  Vests are easy to make and you can find simple sewing patterns with easy vests to make.
