I'm looking for a military-style vest pattern that I can fit to a female frame. Any recommendations?

For a vest pattern, post in Anatomical! You will get better answers there Mme. Ratchet!

I usually just use my favourite fitted jacket pattern without the sleeves to make a nice form-fitting waistcoat, with a bit of alteration to the neckline if I want something with reveres otherwise it's got a stand-up collar.  That still looks fine as a waistcoat though.

If you have a fabric store near you, go in and look at the pattern catalogs. They will have plenty of possible options, you can find something that can be adjusted to get what you want. You could even look online to get an idea what is out there.

I'm asking here because I'd like other people's opinions. Like which ones do you like?

No, it doesn't help. If I wanted to know what google thought, I would have googled it. No, I wanted to know what my fellow steampunks thought. But I have yet to get very much input at all. So thanks for all of the lack of helpfulness.

Sorry,i Thought Google Would Help, You may want to Check with somewhere like Joanne Fabrics or Other Such Places or Check for a Military Surplus Store to see if They Have Vests or check with Someone Who does Historic Reacreations to see if they Could Help You. Hope This is a Help to You.
