This is an intermediate sewing pattern. I believe in stretching myself as a sewist, so I try and incorporate new techniques in each of my patterns. I also LOVE it when I feel like my final piece looks beautiful inside and out.

At our cottage land, it gets chilly – sometimes I REALLY only need to layer my core, but I was lacking a fleece vest (and was jealous of the 5 out of 4 Halftime Hoodie I made into a sleeveless version for Husband). I found the Aspen Fleece vest pattern, So I paired it with some stretchy thick knit black and neon pink fabric for the lining, and have the most awesome core-warming vest for working outside at our cottage land.
I opted for a full zip and regular unzipped side pockets.The zipper instructions were easy to follow, as were all other instructions as normal with Jessica’s patterns.
I really like the amount of pieces in the vest, as that meant I could scrapbust a few pieces in and get the most out of my fabric.
The high collar is really a bonus, as it keeps my neck warm while outside.
So for the Spring, Fall, and Winter, this is another outdoor staple I will eventually wear out, thus will make a back up with the different pocket options for versatility!

I just sewed up the Aspen! Now I ask myself, why did I wait so long? Great fit, easy to sew, looks nice! Thanks for another awesome pattern 5oo4!

This was a great pattern, exactly the style of vest I was looking for – surprisingly hard to find downloadable patterns of this style! I’m large-busted and found that for the size that fit across my bust, the hips ended up being too wide, so had to make some small modifications on the fly. Some large-busted and/or small-hipped sewers who aren’t as comfortable modifying patterns might find the fit of this less satisfactory. The pattern was easily modifiable, though; I also left off the breast pocket, and dropped the lower edge of the back yoke down to be in line with the front one. Overall quite happy with this! Thank you for the pattern!
