Beautiful vests

I bought this pattern initially to make Halloween costumes for my children. They continue to wear them as an extra layer - especially to Forest School, where they really "get into character". Thank you! The pattern assembled simply and beautifully without any fuss.

Great Pattern With One Change

My mom made my 2 year old son the Dragon Vest. The only thing we would change is the hood size. It was a little small and kept falling off. Otherwise we absolutely love how it turned out! We had a lot of people asking us where we got it.

She said the pattern was a little tricky but she just retired and has re-discovered sewing so maybe that was why. She is excited to make another vest soon.

Adore this vest!

This is such a sweet pattern! I made the regular front, but definitely want to make the crossover front next time! It was a pretty quick sew, and the instructions are great! I love making my daughter T&T clothing, they make me look like I’m a much better sewer than I am AND the product always looks so professional and CUTE! I have many more of these planned for her fall and winter wardrobe! 😍

Fantastic pattern!

I absolutely LOVE the way my dragon turned out! It is one of the most adorable things I have made thus far! The pattern pieces are incredible, written well, and easy to follow step-by-step instructions! All of my friends and family were blown away that I made something so intricate.... Twig & Tale totally makes that possible even for the most beginner sewers- like me!

Fun sew! Cutest vests!

This vest was so great to put together! The instructions are easy to follow, and you can completely customize it however you want! The animals turn out so cute, and are perfect for every day imaginative play or dress up costumes for holidays! I can see many of these in our future!

Grandchildren Loved Them.

My grandson, age 6, kept asking on FT if I’ve made his black cat vest and was super excited to have it finally delivered as was GD (4) who wanted a puppy costume. I think this pattern and instructions were excellent. I sized up for both. I squared the ears and added appliqué on the puppy ears. I made extra tails for both. The photos don’t do the vests justice. They are super cute on! I was particularly happy with the good fit. Both are reversible and should fit them a couple years or more. I’d definitely recommend the pattern!
