Make Notes - Racer Vest

Construction techniques: Simple stretch stitch seams and binding finishings

Suitable fabrics: The Racer Vest is a fitted jersey pattern which means it needs to be paired with a stretchy fabric. You can use a jersey with an elastane blend or a fabric knitted with plenty of stretch. This style works very well with a contrast colour for the armhole and neck binding so you might want to opt for two different colours.

Fabric requirements: Our lay-plans are always done on a single layer of fabric to reduce wastage. 

Self Fabric width 150cm | Sizes 4 - 12 = 70cm | Sizes 14 - 20 = 180cm  | Sizes 14 - 20 = 85cm

Self Fabric width 110cm | Sizes 4 - 12 = 100cm | Sizes 14 - 20 = 100cm | Sizes 14 - 20 = 120cm

If you plan to use a contrast colour for your neck and armhole bindings you’ll need a 20cm strip of contrast colour jersey.

Materials list: Self Fabric (see above), 1 x spool of thread or 4 spools if you're using an overlocker
