Just Patterns - Veronica Vest PDF Sewing pattern
Veronica is a semi-fitted vest that shows appreciation for classic tailoring. It is fully lined and features front and back waist darts, functional welt pockets, and a back adjuster to personalize the fit. The side seams of the vest hit at the high hip. Wear Veronica as a top or layered over your favorite shirt and of course with a pair of Tatjana Trousers!
Sizes: 34 - 60. The pattern is drafted for a height of 5'5" (1m65) and is available in two size ranges: 34-46 and 46-60. Size range 34-46 was developed for a B/C cup size and size range 46-60 for a DD cup size (see the size chart for more information).
The pattern is available in English and in French, it includes:
a layered PDF pattern in 3 formats for each of the 2 size ranges (print at home for US letter or A4, A0, and Projector);
Samples are sewn wool suitings (super 110s). For this pattern, I recommend I recommend light to medium-weight woven fabrics with a good drape such as wool suiting, wool crepe, lightweight wool tweed, cotton twill, and linen-cotton blends.
If using a plaid or a stripe fabric, note that the front dart might make matching difficult.
For reference, I wear the teal and beige samples in size 34 with no alterations. Lilli wears the navy sample in size 52 with no alterations and Pauline wears her Fuschia version in size 44.

Just Patterns is a line of digital sewing patterns inspired by luxury Ready-to-wear and produced in Paris. Through high-end detail-oriented sewing patterns, my goal is to help you create beautiful clothes you will love forever.
My name is Delphine, I am French and I started sewing 20 years ago. As a teen, I was obsessed with the idea of recreating garments that I couldn't afford. I read many books, old and new. I took pattern making and draping classes at prestigious fashion schools in New York and Paris. I went to see fashion exhibitions, and I looked inside all the luxury clothes I could get my hands on. But most importantly, I took advantage of the immense knowledge being shared by the online sewing community.
I hope that you will join me in sewing our dream wardrobes, one unique garment at a time!
