Childs vest

Made Pathfinder vest with crossover front, curved drop back, and bear ears on the hood for a bit of fun for 1 year old boy. The faux leather was 'wool'padded so did not need lining.
Thanks its awesome.

Great directions. Fun Vest!

I wanted to make a vest to go with some pants I wanted to make. I ended up making this vest out of a Ponte with a jersey lining. It is surprisingly warm. I know it is written for wovens, but it worked just fine with some moderate stretch fabric. The directions were easy to understand and I didn’t have to make any adjustments.

Really enjoy creating garments from repurposed fabrics. I love the style of these patterns. Fantastic resources are provided eg. Videos and instructions to create them. This wee cutie is for our first grandchild.
