It’s vest weather again! Thank goodness, I love the fall! And fall clothes. Girl Charlee sent me a yard of this amazing aztecy sweatshirt fleece. It’s gone now :( but they have other sweatshirt fleeces to choose from and other tribal inspired prints also!

First, back your lining with interfacing.
Pin pieces together with right sides together.
Stitch all the way around at 1/4″ leaving a 1.5-2″ opening on a straight edge to turn.
Use pinking shears to reduce seam allowance bulk.
Then turn and pin opening.
Now stitch it onto your garment, starting at stopping where the arrows are below.
Then foldover the top and button it down!That’s it! Thanks Girl Charlee for the awesome fabric! You can find the Aztec Hooded Vest Pattern in my shop!
Great job Kate❤ Love your creativity!
