The pattern is written in US and Dutch terms. You’ll get 2 PDF’s.

I just love, love, the comeback the vest, or slipover, made. For a long time it was something very old-fashioned that I couldn’t have imagined showing its face again on the runways and on the street. Let alone wearing one myself again or designing one! (Or two ;-))
The Giza vest has large armholes which I just think looks awesome. I gives it a little twist and more ‘bite’. You know I don’t like being a square 😉
I think with this vest your wardrobe for this summer will be complete. The Giza vest looks great over a t-shirt, blouse or singlet. It gives your outfit just that little bit extra. Extra colour, extra warmth, extra style.
