Amara Vest - This loose, boxy vest/top is the ideal layering piece to add colour, contrast or texture to a relaxed look. Style features include drop shoulders, patch pockets and a wide neckline. View A has overlapped and raw edges for a super quick and satisfying sewing project. View B has bound edges for extra interest and more fabric options.
