New week, new pattern! We’re excited to bring you our latest design – the Kyoto Vest.

This simple, shawl-collared wrap vest features bound edges and armholes. Effortlessly stylish, Kyoto is the ideal layering piece for the cooler months and can be worn over dresses, tops and shirts. The pattern includes options for both a longer length (above) or shorter  length (below). And the cool thing about this design? It’s made up of only ONE pattern piece!

Version A is designed for boiled wool knits or boiled felted wools as it features raw edges at the back neck and shoulder seams. Version B is for double-sided woven wools or wool blends. The shoulder and back neck seams include a Hong Kong bound finish which allows you to wear the vest as a reversible item.

For an extra detail and bonus neck warmth, we like to close the vest with a kilt pin.

Any of our Bollito boiled wools are perfect for Version A. For our black and white (version B) pictured in this post, we’ve used a beautiful double-sided wool – Two Sisters (below). The olive check fabric above is our 100% wool Subtle Touch, available at Chatswood only.

Other perfect fabrics for Kyoto (Version B) include any double sided wools with more options available in store. The 30mm wool binding that we’ve used on all of our featured vests.

The pattern comes in (Australian) sizes XXS through to XL and is now available in both hardcopy and PDF copy shop/print-at-home version.
