I Am Patterns Hathor Vest (Beginner)

(No reviews yet) Write a Review


I am Hathor, a timeless sleeveless vest with 18 versions to choose from. Combine one of my three neckline options, three pocket options, and two closure methods to make the perfect gilet to fit your needs. I am fully lined and fasten with either press studs or a zip. I have a choice of a simple rounded neckline, a stand-up collar or a hood. I can be sewn with patch pockets, welt pockets or without pockets. I am the perfect sleeveless jacket to slip under a coat in very cold weather, as a mid-season jacket, or as a casual throw-on for cool summer evenings. Depending on fabric used, I can accompany you to town, on your rural walks, and keep you warm on your run. In short, I am perfect for all seasons, and fit into a long-lasting wardrobe.


Level: Simple

All seam allowances are included in the pattern.

The pattern is enclosed in an envelope. It contains the sewing pattern along with a step-by-step illustrated explanation guide.

The different pieces overlap with each other so you will need to trace the pattern on paper. If you prefer a ready-to-cut pattern, try the pdf version as pieces do not overlap with each other.
