Stacey from Hadley Grace Designs sent me this pdf little boy vest pattern to try out. She let me choose the pattern I wanted and, while there are a ton of cute things in her shop, I wanted to make something for the boy. I’d been meaning to make a vest for him, so when I saw the vest pattern in her shop, I took it as a sign.
baby baby hasn’t made an appearance in a while. In the mean time, he went ahead and grew up right before my eyes. Yep, he’s busting out of the vest that shouldn’t even fit him yet. *mommy tears*
This pattern was really easy to sew. It’s reversible, too! Although I didn’t use a reversible fabric on the inside, I just used lining to make it fancy. Next time I make one (which will be soon and a bigger size) I think I’ll do reversible and add the cute faux pockets. Because this kid is a spiller! It would be nice to be able to flip it over at church when we have a SPILL!
The pattern was so easy! I loved making it. I think it looks pretty dang good and it didn’t take long at all! The pattern pieces print at 100% so you don’t have to mess with enlarging or anything like that. It comes in a bunch of sizes (6 months to 5T) so this kid will be rocking the vest for years to come.
I used a silky vintage fabric and vintage buttons. The buttons have little cars on them. Maybe they called them Buggies back then. Cute! Stripes are so hot right now!
If you have a little man, she has this boy pattern set that includes a tie, bow tie and suspenders. So adorable! Thank goodness I have a little boy to sew for. She does have some super cute little girl stuff, too!
