1 Mile Vest Kit (Pattern Included)

De Rerum Natura

From the designer:

When I was in my twenties I bought a knitted turtleneck vest that become a staple of my wardrobe for about 20 years. I was able to wear it regularly until just last year.

It's totally worn out now and even has some pulls in it from my cat's claws. I was on the lookout for a replacement for a while, but couldn't find anything quite like it. I decided that I would need to design a new one myself, but I wasn't able to fit it in until now.

Recently in fashion magazines I noticed the phrase "1 Mile" to talk about casual clothes that are comfortable for wearing around the house but also stylish enough that you wouldn't have second thoughts about wearing them out in your neighborhood. I hope the 1 Mile Vest can be exactly this kind of functional and versatile item in your wardrobe.

I made sure it this vest has everything I was looking for: simple stockinette, a loose fit, and a warm collar. I wear mine with a long sleeved t-shirt for cleaning up around the house and it is perfect for when I need to run errands or go to the grocery store, too.

I hope you'll enjoy wearing yours as much as I do mine!
