Style Tip: Make the style details such as the pockets or yoke from a contrasting fabric so they stand out.

Simplicity 2556

This vest pattern comes from the Project Runway collection by Simplicity. Each item in this collection contains numerous views and a “Sketch & Stitch” template that allows you to trace out your design on a supplied fashion illustration. This pattern has a variety of necklines and center-front opening options as well as several distinctive back views. It also has optional collars and faux welt pocket details to allow numerous variations. Fitted and lined, the pattern provides separate front, side front, and collar pieces for B, C, and D cup sizes. All of the pattern’s registration points match up, and the instructions are accurate, helpful, and easy to follow.

(Sized Misses’ 4–22 for busts 29.5–44 in.)

Style Tip: Make the style details such as the pockets or yoke from a contrasting fabric so they stand out.
