SHIRT TAIL VEST PATTERN #595
This vest has a shirt tail finish at the lower edge. Choose from 3 lengths, shirt length, tunic, and duster length. Beginning spiral patchwork, crinkling and couching add to the basics in the pattern. Use the 3 pair button arrangement combined with small handbag chain as a front closure.
Linda likes to choose a basic pattern, make adjustments for perfect fit then redesign the personal basic into a variety of styles. She has added Two Ideas to the Shirt Tail Pattern #595 that give this wonderful basic incredible new looks. Add a lined yoke to a tunic or duster length. The unlined body of the vest is soft and flowing. Use a stripe or plaid and fussy cut for variety. For the machine or longarm quilters, remove the side seam allowances for continuous stitching around the body and no bulk at the seams.
