I had quite a lot of fun with the welt pockets on my vest for Cai. I guess this is starting to become a signature move for me, to have playful pockets in my children's wear. First example of playful pockets here.
My one huge error was that I bought a SPORTS zipper. Well, after deciding that I could pull it apart and still make it work... it did not work. This means that my vest is unzip-able. That was frustrating, because when I make hand-made clothes, of course I want them to function well! At some point I will rip it out and maybe do buttons down the front or something!
Okay, enough about what I did... I need to talk about this cute pattern! And it really IS cute! The instructions have Kate's complete flair! I actually had to write her right back and tell how how excited I got just to sew, because of how darling her instructions were to read! That's how it should be! If I am ever a pattern designer, I must make cute instructions like Kate! I think if you want a fun vest for a boy OR girl, then this is a really awesome pattern to choose! The directions are clear and you have step by step photos to help you out! I loved making it and isn't Cai such a cutie in it!?
