Adding to cart… The item has been added

The "Brief Escape" is a reversible garment that can be made with three different looks. The vest looks great with either a pant or a skirt. The short or long sleeve jacket can become a suit by adding a skirt or pant. This reversible garment is extremely versatile. Side 1 features inseam pockets and a small pocket hidden discretely under the collar. This is a great place to stash a hotel key card, credit card or some extra cash. Side 2 features two invisible side front pockets with hidden zipper closures. They will hold a passport, traveler's checks or any of life's necessities. A choice of shawl or notched collar add more options. The notched collar is designed to flip to either side or you may choose to make one without a collar. The instructions give suggestions for adding fringe or piping for added interest. This versatile garment will be a favorite addition for wearing around town or around the world. With one garment you get the benefit of two.

All sizes (XS-3XL) included in pattern!

Fabric Choices: cottons, cotton batik, light-weight denim, silk, rayon, light-weight wool, linen or microfibers.

    Brief Escape Saf-T-Pockets

    Posted by C Kasper Leshin on Sep 19th 2020

    Although I love the idea of pockets in a vest, I have to take away two stars because the instructions and diagrams are sub-par. I am a fairly advanced sewer, and have made reversible vests and jackets before, but I had a very hard time following and understanding the diagrams. The neck facing on the back (#12) wasn't even mentioned. Right side and wrong side of patterns weren't always shaded in appropriately on view 1 side 2. It would also help to indicate right and left, top and bottom, on partial illustrations. So A+ for style, and C- for instructions.
