TREASURE VEST PATTERN
This pattern is worked in sections. You will begin by making two side panels (one at a time) worked back and forth from the bottom up. You will then make the back panel, which is also worked back and forth from top down. Then you will seam the back panel to the side panels. Next you will block the vest.
The vest is intended to be worn open in the front. You can use a shawl pin or button small to close it.
