This post is the fourth post in our series featuring all six of our new apparel patterns from the Indygo Essentials collection. We are pleased to share with you is our Indygo Essentials - Mandarin Vest.

This versatile vest is loaded with options! Two lengths - mid-hip & upper thigh - give you just the coverage you are looking for.


The two included pocket options - a gathered top patch pocket or inset, top-stitched pockets - can be added to either the long or the short version.


This vest also provides you a variety of closure options. Go without any closures for a casual look.

Accentuate the Asian feel by add a knotted frog closure like this one from Prym.

Or try a large button for a more modern look.

Hi Becky!
For all sizes and either short or long vest:
7/8 yard of 20" wide lightweight NON WOVEN or NON WOVEN FUSIBLE INTERFACING. (collar interfacing cut on straight grain)
Optional: sew on closure for neckline

I recently purchased the Mandarin vest pattern at a quilt store. On the outside pattern envelope it states that interfacing and additional notion requirements are on inside of pattern. I just finished looking at the pattern and can not find anything that states how much interfacing and what type is needed.

Do have a pattern for vest or jacket that has a hidden inner pocket for a phone? I have a jacket that has one and love it. Its deep enough that if you bend over it wont fall out. Havent figured it out how to do it.
