A simple, easy vest, with almost no finishing. The perfect thing to throw on with just about anything when you need an extra layer of cozyness with no fuss or bulk. The vest is designed to hang open, keeping the silhouette slim, but looks just as good accessorized with a belt or brooch. Try experimenting with this vest! It’s a great simple shape to add stripes, colourwork, maybe a cable or two, pockets… the possibilities are endless!
