Pattern Details

A delightful vest pattern suitable for both boys and girls and easy to sew. A simply sweet little vest in 3 sizes,3 months,6 months and 9 months. The vest is designed to be a generous fit. This design used to be my favorite when my sons were small. When they outgrew one I made another in a bigger size. It's the kind of practical, fun top that will take a baby anywhere and keep him warm but not restricting active movements. Over the years I have made many of these in all sorts of sizes and colours with different kinds of applique. Make it from any colour fleece fabric,it will look fabulous. It is fully lined with knit fabric,which makes it reversible it you like You can make it from faux fur and omit the applique for a very trendy look. The crochet sheep are easy to make and are hand stitched onto the jacket. You could play around with all sorts of embellishments for both boys and girls, the sky is the limit! All edges and hemlines are embellished with hand embroidered blanket stitch for an extra hand made touch.

I am a fashion/ textile designer and mother of six children. Over time I have designed and knitted as well as sewn hundreds of items of baby and childrens clothing. I am a designer specializing in innovative and practical children's wear that is timeless and understated. Sewing, knitting and designing for babies and children gives me special joy and freedom to be playful, nostalgic and quirky. I prefer natural yarns and fabrics as these don't just feel and look good, they also perform very well when used for children's garments. My belief is that children's wear should be fun, practical and comfortable as well as easy to care for. I am a highly creative person and there are a lot of artists, designers as well as dressmakers in my family and my great grandfather who was as a sewing machine engineer... Nothing quite compares with making something for your little one yourself. I encourage everyone with the urge to have a go. It's fun and a lot easier than you think! One of my daughters knitted a very simple blanket for her baby brother when she was 10 years old. It is by no means perfect but it has become a very special prized possession that both her and her brother will cherish for years to come. Empower yourself and have a go!
