Good pattern

I had issues with missing instructions. Most has been rectified but I won’t be using elastic cord if I make it again. How to install it with the knot in the way is not clearly explained. I ended up removing the knot but have been instructed that it may not hold well long term. It is clear the designer wanted you to make your own loops for this project and I think it would run more smoothly that way.
I’m not a fan of the end result but that is due to my choices not the design. Seemed well drafted and the included instructions were good

Great product.

I was looking for a pattern like this for long time and finally found it. I made one for myself and love the shape.

Great Pattern

I’ve been searching for a vest pattern like this, and came across this one on Etsy. I made a Muslim first according to my measurements, and it was a little too big, so I sized down, and it turned out perfect. The instructions were very clear, and easy to follow. I used a pre quilted fabric with a slight stretch, and lined it with Rayon Challis. I also used the button loops, and cover buttons with the lining fabric. It turned out so nice. Can’t wait to see more patterns in the future from this company!

Enjoyable and Easy to Follow Instructions

I had so much fun making my Pathfinder. There were so many options to make it my own. I added piping and a fur trim to my pixie hood. Instructions were so easy to follow with video tutorials even a beginner could follow.
I am definitely planning on making more from Twig and Tale.
Thank you!

a challenge but worth it

I really like my vest now that it is finished although the fit isn't perfect. I found it really hard to make despite taking it slow and unpicking seams more times than i want to remember.. but i did try really hard to fit it well and then i unpicked to add first time ever piping to the seams etc because I wanted a really impressive finished vest :D I tried many of the fit adjustments included in the pattern (really appreciated the inclusion of these) and still couldn't get it right which was a bit disappointing, but overall i do love my vest and I'm sure it will get a lot of wear. I love that it has non scary fastening options :D and i love the cute additions like the pixie hood and (totallly pain in the bum to gather and sew all the layers in well, but completely worth the trouble-) -flutter sleeves. Also love the lower back!! Instructions were really clear and all the inspiration pics for ideas etc were great. thankyou Lisa!!

A beautifully put together pattern

I'm sewing my first pathfinder right now and LOVE everything about this pattern. From well worded, clear instructions and videos for every step to inspiration photos and encouragement to use recycled materials and try new things like embellishing with embroidery, instructions to get the perfect fit and a beautifully drafted pattern. - it's the best PDF pattern I've ever bought (and I've bought a lot! From a lot of different designers). Thanks Lisa. I can't wait to wear my pathfinder and make many more.
