A paper sewing pattern by Folkwear.

Choose between three Victorian Vests for women and two for men. A pattern for a traditional bow tie is also included.

Views A and B are originally men's vests, now sized also for women. View C is a closely fitted women's vest. All three are fully lined; the backs are cut from lining fabric for comfort and to reduce bulk.

View A is a simple, collarless V-neck vest with four welt pockets and adjustable back waist belt. Center front is pointed at the bottom and rises to high hip length at sided and back.

View B is bias-cut for a decorative fabric treatment, featured a shawl collar, and ends above the hipbones with a shallow point in front. Like View A, a back waist belt adjusts the fit.

View C is shorter, extending just to the waist. Four front darts fit the vest snugly to the bust. A small notched collar plunges into the double-breasted front, which closes with two rows of buttons. Traditional Bow Tie (with instructions for tying) are also included.

Suggested fabrics: Medium to heavyweight fabrics of cotton, silk, wool, linen, synthetics or blends with or without nap, such as brocade, velvet, corduroy, canvas, pique, velveteen, or synthetic suede. The bias cut of the shawl-collar vest is especially suitable for stripes or plaids.

The pattern contains UK women's sizes 10-20 (US 6-16) 30 1/2" - 38" bust)
and men's sizes 36-44 (36-44" chest.)
