Trailblazer Vests are made for crisp mornings and ambitious endeavours. Zip up, slip hands in (deep, man-sized!) pockets and be ready for whatever outdoor adventures may come along.
Make old things new again! Twig & Tale patterns pair wonderfully with upcycled fabrics. Look to vintage wool coats, gently used corduroy/wool trousers and sleeping bags.

I was very intimidated but decided that my husband, son, 2 step sons, 2 son-in-laws, and 2 friends would all be getting Trailblazer Vests for Christmas this year. My husband came to Joann's to pick out Duck Cloth, complimenting plaid flannel, zippers, snaps, thread, and "Warm & Natural" needles cotton batting(for warmth) for them all. I was equipped with all my materials and directions, took a deep breath, and forged ahead! I can honestly say the directions made it SEW easy!!!!! I even graded all their sized to make the fit just right. They do run a little bigger than I thought they would but the boys I've given them to already said they prefer them that way so they can wear hoodies under them. They all came out perfect!.
Great pattern! Experianced sewer, but found this pattern very detailed and easy to follow. Would recommend to a new sewer!
I have just finished sewing the Men's trailblazer vest. It is very fitted and looks great. Just make sure you get the measurements correct or it may not fit well. I needed to add a few inches onto the length. My brother-in-law would like one now. Back to the sewing machine!
As with all Twig and Tale patterns this one is great. Super helpful instructions too.
Love this vest -not complicated directions are easy and pattern is easy to put together can’t wait to make another.
