The Sensational Scarf Vest is a lightweight and softly draped quilt piece to wear with so much! This scarf vest could easily accent a pair of pants, skinny jeans, skirt, or even a dress. The vest is self-lined and has soft, draping shoulders.
Lightweight sheer fabrics are the best choice for this project. Consider silk chiffon, lightweight silky polyester, sheer rayon, tissue linen, or cotton voile. There is no reason you can’t make the Sensational Scarf Vest out of a quilting cotton, but it will not drape as nicely.
This is a loose-fitting one-size-fits-most-sizes (Misses 6-14) vest. Need to make it larger? It’s easy to do! Using the included pattern, add enough to the sides to have a slight overlapping of the back to the front. You can also add length to the bottom if desired. Making a vest out of muslin first, with all your own changes, will ensure a great fit in the end.
