Vest review

Just made my first pathfinder vest for my 7 year old granddaughter. The pattern was easy to use and the instructions were easily followed. Looking forward to making more.

Clear instructions

I’d admired this pattern from afar for quite some time and finally had the courage. I shouldn’t have worried! The instructions were so clear and easy to follow! Very impressed.

Super cute and easy

Take it from someone who can only see straight lines. This was deceivingly easy to sew. I was pretty chuffed to have made a vest for my daughter, and will be making lots more!

Little pathfinder

From little and rusty sewing skills I made a simple little vest for my granddaughter. The experience was seamless ( pardon the pun) I am now going to make one for my grandson before venturing up to a coat and shirt. Love it!

Perfect little pattern

I love all the options to customise the most perfect little vest! So many possibilities! I made a little bear vest from a wool blanket and it turned out absolutely perfect. Can’t wait to make more!! Thank you

Easy to sew, adorable!

I made a vest with a pixie hood for my niece’s first birthday. I used corduroy for the outer fabric and quilting cotton for the lining. I really liked the layer feature on the PDF file as well as all the options to customize. I’ll be making more for my own kids!

Pathfinder Vest

What a quick easy make! I put it together with a coverstitch and it has become my go to vest daily! I have ordered more fabric to make one for my daughter-in-law and new baby. Matching Mom / Baby ensemble.
