CLASSIC QUILTED VESTS is unique in two ways. Included in the book is a full size master vest pattern for sizes eight through eighteen. All the vests shown in the book hove been made from this basic pattern. Also, the quilt block patterns selected for embellishing the vests are not commonly found drafted in pattern books.

We have been making and wearing our quilted vests for several years and have enjoyed the compliments and comments they inspire. We hope you will have fun making vests for yourself and others.« less
