Rest Vest for ADULTS

(2 customer reviews)


Shop sales are in British Pounds  CURRENCY CONVERSION

The extremely versatile Rest Vest is a gorgeous, cleverly constructed, easy to wear garment with angled seamlines that lends itself to colour-blocking. The unique back detail flatters the shoulders and creates
a statement silhouette. Unlike the Rest Vest for teens, it flows at the hips.

It can be worn just as easily for casual everyday comfort with our wide-leg Slow Pants as it can for sweaty workouts, nights out with friends, the beach or for bed with our soon to be released Go Shorties.


Fabric recommendations

  • Light to medium weight jersey, something with a bit of drape works well like a viscose/elastane or a technical sportswear jersey.
  • A poly/cotton or 100% cotton single jersey will be fine, as long as it’s a lighter weight so it has a bit of drape.

You should be able to stretch the fabric by a minimum of 20% and it should snap back to its original size after stretching.

    Years ago my boyfriend bought me two tops which i wore to death every summer, last year i started looking for a pattern for a new top in their spirit but nothing came even close. Until now, my first rest vest has been worn constantly, its good for shopping, training(i own a gym), yoga, lounging, walking the dog, cleaning, sewing everything. You need this pattern, its cool for color blocking or using different fabrics together and changing it up every time!
