The Ilse Vest is a versatile and relaxed easy wearing garment
and the pattern offers cups sizes for fine-tuning the fit of your
garment. Cup Sizes – B, C, D, DD(E).

Finish the Ilse with its Obi Wrap Belt or purchased front fastening.


The Ilse Vest can be made in a myriad of medium weight fabrics leaving the garment edges raw to fray or face the edges for a clean and polished finish.

The contouring of the front princess panel along with a choice of cup size pattern pieces gives the opportunity of sculpting the Ilse to your body contours.

Get creative and add your personalized final touch to the Ilse by making your own self fabric Obi Wrap Belt.

The construction of the Ilse is recommended for advanced beginner/intermediate levels due to:

  • Princess panel seams and optional faced collar
  • Self fabric Obi Belt with ties
  • Cup Size choices – B, C, D, DD(E)
  • All seams have the option of double top stitching
  • A very good knowledge of your own personal fitting requirements as the pattern offers the opportunity to fine-tune the fit of your garment
