Style Tip: Make these two pieces in complementary neutral colors. That way, you can wear them together or with other pieces from your wardrobe.

Vogue 1184

This Sandra Betzina pattern features an unlined vest with an oversize collar and a chic pair of shorts. This Asian-inspired vest frames the face and can be worn propped up, as illustrated below, or folded over as styled at right. The shorts come in two lengths, and with deep box pleats, they offer plenty of walking ease. Details include welt pockets with a button and loop closure, a nicely curved waistband, and optional belt loops. Instructions for the fly front are extremely precise so that even a beginner can follow them easily. Also included are directions for adjusting the shorts for thigh width, crotch length, swayback, and either flat or protruding seats.

(Sized Misses’ A–J for busts 32–55 in. and hips 34.5–57 in.)

Style Tip: Make these two pieces in complementary neutral colors. That way, you can wear them together or with other pieces from your wardrobe.
