Description:

This double-breasted dress/vest has a wide peak lapel collar, welt pockets and a back vent which are all details found in a gentleman’s wardrobe. The dress/vest has a semi-fitted silhouette that follows the female shape without ever being too tight. The dress/vest is fully lined which makes it extra comfortable to wear. All pattern pieces have been interfaced to help maintain the shape. This dress/vest has a classic yet playful expression that can be styled many different ways. Use Lyng as a dress when it’s closed or a vest when it’s open.
