How to turn a boy pattern into a girl pattern- Vogue Knitting
Hello, I just got my new Vogue Knitting International Winter edition. There is a chapter called "Boy Meets Purl" with designs by Josh Bennett. I love the patterns, and I really love the hound's-tooth vest on page 61. But I want to make it for me, not for a boy. Does anyone know how to alter a pattern to make it more contoured for a woman? Thank you!

Most clothing these days is unisex. If its got buttons/fasteners on it you could put them on the other side. Or just wear it as it is. Just because there is a male modeling the vest, does not mean a woman can not wear it.

That looks like a fairly fitted vest. You might have to do some shaping on the sides and bust, but I'm not sure how you'd go about it for such a detailed design.

Always include a link when possible.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
