Great pattern!

I really love this pattern! I am a beginner sewist and this pattern and instructions have enabled me to make a really professional looking vest. All the pattern pieces line up perfectly (a bit of a rarity in my limited experience) and there instructions are very clear and detailed. The tips for inserting the zip are spot on, enabling me to get it just right (and it was my first one). My OH is delighted with his vest. I plan to make more for him and get the womens pattern too. How nice it was to feel happy and proud rather than frustrated at the end of a make. Thank you.

Great Pattern

This was a really well designed pattern and sizing was accurate to list. I was very impressed with the instructions with clear details and photos. The video tutorials were helpful too. I chose to make my own outside pockets and I am very happy with the result. It's a Christmas gift!

great pattern!

I just love this pattern- was super easy to follow even with the alterations i made to make it a single layer over being a lined vest. I cannot comment on fit yet as it’s still in transit to its home but it looked like it’d be good!

LOVE A GOOD CAMO VEST

Pattern went together well. Sizes seem to run a tad big. The pieces went together perfectly thanks to step by step directions. Only used seam ripper once, but was a machine issue and a stitch I wasn't happy with. Thanks T&T.
