This is a versatile pattern for boys and girls. This vest is perfect for the cold days, it is fully lined with high collar, welt pockets and it closes with a zipper. You can even make this vest reversible by using a reversible zipper! You can make this vest with or without pockets, this tutorial includes the instructions to make welt pockets but you easily can skip those and add a different type of pocket instead; such as patch pocket or flap pocket (this are not included in this pattern). The version without pocket is very simple to sew and makes it a good project for beginners, while the version with pockets requires more sewing skills, and is more suitable for an intermediate sewer. The PDF file includes: - Tutorial: A step-by-step tutorial with easy and clear instructions and color photos. The tutorial will guide you on how to cut the pieces of fabric and how to sew the them. - Pattern: It includes the fully scaled color-coded computer drafted pattern. The pattern should be printed into 21 sheet A4/Letter size, this pdf pattern provides clear nstructions on how to assemble those pages. - Table of final measurements - List of materials - Directions to cut the pieces of fabric SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 1 year: 13 1/4" (length) - 24" (body circumf.) 2 years: 14 1/2" (length) - 25 1/2" (body circumf.) 3 years: 15 1/2" (length) - 27" (body circumf.) 4 years: 16 1/2" (length) - 28" (body circumf.) 5 years: 17 1/2" (length) - 29" (body circumf.) 6 years: 18 1/2" (length) - 30" (body circumf.) 7 years: 19 1/2" (length) - 31" (body circumf.) 8 years: 20 1/2" (length) - 32" (body circumf.)

My name is Cecilia, I'm an Analyst Programmer by career, crafter, passionate about sewing, designer, wife, mother... I love crafting since I remember, as a child I used to spend a lot of time designing, painting, making crafts in general. I grew up watching my mother sewing and as a teenager I used to design my own dresses and she used to sew them for me. A few months after my little girl was born I started to design and sew clothes for her... soon I started a blog about the stuff I do ( as a way to share my ideas and craftiness :) with other people.. I own The Lily Bird Studio where I sell sewing patterns for babies and kids wear.
