These Sherpa style vests are a cozy, casual, and fun addition to any outfit. Surprisingly easy to make, they are made from a bonded suede & fleece fabric, and sewn with the seams exposed on the outside. Both vests have a rounded collar, and the fleece is exposed on the hem and armholes. They close with leather lacings anchored by decorative triangle patches. Wooden beads are used for the buttons. View A is hip length, and View B is mid-thigh with decorative patch pockets. Hat and boot patterns are available separately, as well as a bundled package with all three patterns.
Special Note - This pattern is designed to fit a Journey Girls® Doll specifically and will not fit the standard 18 inch doll such as American Girl® Doll. A Journey Girls® doll is 18 inches tall but has a much slimmer body. You can see more info on our Doll Measurements page.
