This vest is very figure flattering because of its slight A-line shaping. In addition, it is super comfortable. Wear it with jeans or over a skirt. It surely will become your favorite everyday vest!

The vest is knit from the top-down; it has a gradual v-shaped front that meets at the waist, and is closed with a simple hook closure. It has a slight A-shape below the waist. The bottom fronts are adorned with pockets that are not only pretty, but are practical as well.

In the Spirit of Full Disclosure: You do have to join the ends of the collar at the back of the neck, and have to sew on the sides of the little pockets, so one little bit of seam. :)
