From The Assembly Line, the Cap Sleeve Vest is the ultimate layering piece, with an easy fit for many body types.
Cap sleeve vest works as a vest, jacket, cardigan, blazer and more. It has a straight shape, features hidden front pockets with large flaps and snap buttons for closing at front.
The pattern includes both a lined and an unlined version.
The vest is not difficult to sew and can be transformed from skill level average to easy in no time if you skip the lining and perhaps use sew-on snap buttons, or no buttons, for the first one.
