About 2 years ago, I published Tweedy with Petite Purls. It was received well and the type of colorwork I used on the pattern is one of my favorites.
I have been wanting to make a version for adult sizes and when I tweeted about it, Brandy from Petite Purls contacted me about an upsized edition they were planning! I was super excited and decided to style this with a zipper and a collar, instead of keeping the “school uniform” look of the original Tweedy.
Body: I designed this to be worn snug almost with a negative ease , so if you look at the schematics, you will see that the body (from the armhole to the bottom of the vest) is only 13″. I’m wearing the sample (32″) and I’m 34″ so you see that it’s not THAT tight or short but if you happen to have longer torso than most people or you want a a bit more ease, go up a size and then add about 10 rows of stockinette st before working the waste shaping.
