Hello! Happy Monday!
I’ve got a great little freebie for you today. I am sharing two ladies vest patterns from Dainty Work for Pleasure and Profit from 1902.
There are actually two vest patterns included, but only one was pictured, which is the one above.
It was a little too tricky to post all the images here for the pattern, since there were several pages, so I compiled a little PDF e-pattern you can view, save, and print here. Feel free to use it for yourself, or use to make presents. . Since I took the time to scan in original source for free, the only thing I ask is that you don’t re-sell the pdf. Thanks :)
Don’t forget that antique needles were different than modern needle sizes, so check out this conversion chart to find out more. It looks like these would be about a size 3, but you should make a swatch to figure out what would work best.
