Title: How to make a vest
Post by: Amena Nehutyc on Feb 06, 2019, 11:55 AM
Hey y’all. For anyone interested, I made a how to tutorial on making my mando vest. I tried finding a video in the past, and couldn’t find anything. I really hope this comes of some use to those of us who sew.  :sabine:

Thank you for this.  I have been debating what type of concept I was going to use for "securing" the vest.  I have been toying with "boot lace" up the sides (like on a blackhawk vest) or zippers up the side, but this concept looks like it gives adjustment while still being very secure!

Couple of questions to make sure I am following.

From the 2851 pattern, pieces 1, 2, 3, & 4 are just for the front, and you used the t-shirt base as the back?

What type material did you use, and would you recommend the same, or would you change (knowing what you know now)?
