Pattern Description:

This slouchy vest is a fashion forward layering piece. It is inspired by the trendy area of Paris known as Le Marais. Features include modular inset panels between the front and back sections that create an unstructured flowing shape with a handkerchief hem. The small collar and front edgings are in stocking stitch that is slightly ruffled and deliberately allowed to curl. These design elements result in a chic modern look with textural interest. The piece is easy-to-wear with its flowing lines that camouflage the hip area. In a light yarn, it can be worn year-round.
