My mom wants a sweater vest cover up. This is the only one I have found so far that seems to fit.

Do you mean in the size or to her taste?
For a larger size here are some options, mostly knit side to side so they're easily adjustable.

Edit:
A set in sleeve style cardigan could work also. just do without sleeves and add armhole band instead.

I like that pattern!!

If you are loooking for a "larger vest" the Prudence Vest on the Berroco has directions for up to a 52 inch bust.

Is there a video somewhere for Icord edging? I've done plain I cord before but never applied I cord.

Mom's not large, a Medium size at most, but I wanted something nice and roomy to wear over sweaters, etc.

I'm still looking at your posts. Thanks!
