Trailblazer Vests are made for crisp mornings and ambitious endeavours. Zip up, slip hands in pockets and be ready for whatever outdoor adventures may come along.
Such a quick sew. I was a little worried about how hard it might be to put together but it was much easier and quicker than I thought. I just love the finished vest and can’t wait to test it out this winter!
I made a quilted version of this Trailblazer Vest. I have to say it is one of my favourite patterns I’ve ever made. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. My zip went in like a dream. I interlined it with thermal fabric and have worn it every day since I made it. I put in hidden lining pockets using the online tutorial which have proved so useful. Also using the tips for altering the fit means I have managed to get a gilet that fits really well. I intend to get the children’s pattern next and have a go at making a reversible version.
The instructions were easy to follow, and the sizing is spot on. Can’t believe how polished my vest looks, it was easy to get a beautiful satisfying garment. I’ll be making many more, it’s such a handy layering piece for Melbourne Australia weather
