8388 Waistcoat

One of the most basic possible vests, smart and easy and quick, with modern dash. Armholes are beautifully full-fashioned, as you can see; the collar is self-shaping, with no short rows to muddy the process. Front bands are worked as part of the left and right fronts. Finishing is minimal. You join the side and armhole border seams and sew on the patch pockets (if you want them), and that's it. The print is quite large, it's simple to read, and there's only the one button and buttonhole to accommodate.
