This pattern was originally released as the Sun Struck Mystery Create-A-Long in May 2017.


The Sun Struck Boho Vest is the perfect addition to every summer wardrobe….and since the pattern is written in all sizes Toddler through Women’s 3XL (that’s 9 different sizes!), it really can be made for every female you know! The trendy style is sure to appeal to appeal to the younger crowd, while the elegant lace work makes it a stunning piece for more mature women as well.

This light-weight cotton vest can be dressed up or down.
Wear it with a cute spaghetti strap for a carefree summer style, or pair it with a long sleeved shirt or dress for a more elegant look. Dress it up by wearing it over your Sunday best, or dress it down by throwing it on over a tank top and some skinny jeans. It looks gorgeous in any combination!

When you pair the versatility of this design with the step by step video tutorials that are included, and the 10 different sizes you’ll get, this is a pattern that you’re absolutely going to want to have in your collection! Though the lace looks intimidating (beautiful things always do, right!?), it’s actually quite simple….with the videos to help with any issue you might encounter, you’ll breeze through it!


Since this pattern was first released as a Mystery Create-A-Long design, it’s been thoroughly tested and created by upwards of 400 crafters already! Here’s what a couple had to say about this pattern:
