    15/5 Stars, Highly Recommend, will make (TONS) more!!!

    I used this pattern with the fisherman's add-on to make my son a paleontology vest for his school's career day. I only had a few days to make it and did just that - even while battling the stomach virus given to me by said son (Lol!). The instructions are extremely well-written, easy to follow, and the layout makes it easy to follow along (even when you're ill lol). Typically, I struggle with e-reading and following video tutorials; but, I didn't with these.

    I had so much FUN making this! My son LOVED trying his vest on at various points in the process! He now rarely takes his vest off - I'm considerably lucky to even be able to WASH it.

    I love the flexibility in T&T patterns where style or "extras" are concerned (i.e. pockets, necklines, etc). I also love the suggested ways to "up-cycle" current items for use in T&T patterns.

    How many times did I use the word "love?" Repetition is bad for college papers, great for T&T reviews!!

    I've since purchased the adult pattern and fisherman's add-on for myself. I can't wait to make more of these!!

    Perfect!

    The instructions were so easy to follow I made the fisherman’s vest for my grandsons first birthday. I used a pair of camo hunting pants from the thrift store. This will be a yearly tradition.

    Kids trailblazer - Great design in all ways!

    Fantastic design. I made version with zip and no front flap. Instruction very easy to follow and explained in details. Pattern pieces match perfectly together. My boys love their vests and wear them al the time. Looking forward to making adult version.

    fISHERMAN'S ADD-ON VEST

    I had 7 great grandsons to make the fisherman's vest for Chrismas. I took some time to gather all the measurements and print out the patterns. I used a lot of paper and ink but once all that was done and I had organized the different sizes, the sewing went fast. I was able to change the style to suit each child. The youngest was for a 2 year special needs child that I was able to add attachments for stimulation and sensory play. One was for a 3 year old that I outfitted for discovery and attached flashlight, magnifying glass, and compass. the other 5 were fisherman's vest that I outfitted with various fishing items. The directions were clear and the videos helped .

    Awsome

    I made a trailblazer for my dad decided to do it reversible took a whole to work out but the clear concise instructions made my task a lot easier. I then went on to make the women's one for myself, and a friend, then my sister wanted one each for her daughter in law and niece for Christmas, so I have nearly finished them, with the remaining fabric I made one for her grandson 18months and her great niece 6years the little ones are a surprise add on so hopefully my sister will have a lovely suprise. Thank you twig and tail I love this pattern and will be using them for years to come. Instructions second to none. X
