The V-vest has a very deep V neck, the entire back is rib and the splits between front and back is not placed at the side but a little inside at the front piece.
The vest is made in one piece, so no seams to sew, no stitches to pick up and no rib edge to make. A beautiful , soft and loose vest that can be worn both over a tight T-shirt and a pair of Jeans but also really nice over a dress.

Measures are taken when the vest is lying flat on the table. The vest has a loose fit and because the entire back is rib it is very elastic. My body chest width is 92 cm. I’m wearing size 2 (small-large) at the photos.
