These Sherpa style vests are a cozy, casual, and fun addition to any outfit. Surprisingly easy to make, they are made from a bonded suede & fleece fabric, and sewn with the seams exposed on the outside. Both vests have a rounded collar, and the fleece is exposed on the hem and armholes. They close with leather lacings anchored by decorative triangle patches. Wooden beads are used for the buttons. View A is hip length, and View B is mid-thigh with decorative patch pockets. This PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit 18 inch dolls such as American Girl®.
