Button-Front Vest

In addition to learning basic garment construction, you will learn to sew a collar and facing, make and apply bias tape, buttons and buttonholes, and do simple fitting and pattern adjustments.

Set up an appointment prior to the class to come to Simply Fabrics and custom fit the vest pattern to you. Priced by the hour and separate from the class, fitting the pattern usually takes from 1/2 hour to 2 hours depending on the extent of the changes needed. Then bring the pattern to the class ready to cut out.

You will take home a custom-made vest and pattern that you can make again at home.

Supplies needed for Button Front Vest:

Classic Clothing Button-Front Vest pattern (L5301).

Please purchase and prewash and dry your fabric prior to the class. This vest can be made out of a wide variety of fabrics. These include cotton, cotton blends, batiks, corduroy, wool, suiting, lightweight denim, linen and more. Fabrics with some cotton content are going to be easier to sew than a polyester fabric. Do not use slippery or stretchy fabrics or a plaid.

15/8- 17/8 yards of 45” wide fabric.
