Sew an Easy to Make Vest Top


Cutting the Vest

Cut 1 back and one front. Place the pattern to the fold and draw it onto your fabric using tailor’s chalk or a sliver of bath soap (PS: bath soap makes a wonderful marker, it’s easy to use and glides over the fabric and it washes off in the first wash). If you’re going to bind the neck and arm edges, cut a binding in the correct width for the neck and armholes.

Sewing the top

If you’re adding binding -

Sew the top together, right sides together, at one shoulder. Apply binding to neck and one arm’s edge Sew the other shoulder together Complete the binding Sew the side seams and neaten the hem edge Hem and press

If you’re hemming the top at neck and arms -

Sew the garment, right sides together, at shoulders and sides. Neaten all edges. Using a steam iron press a 1cm hem around the neck, arms and base. Hem using a stretch stitch on your machine( or a serger)
