KCWC - Day Two
Today I was excited to try out a little vest for T using the free Leila and Ben unisex vest pattern. The fabric came from a thrifted wool skirt for the main fabric and a men's button down for the lining, and I have to say, the whole thing was extremely gratifying. The pattern was clear and it was super quick so I'll be churning out a couple more in some different colors/patterns because they are too cute. I'll probably add 2 or so inches to the bottom because it's a little on the short side with T's big ol' belly but other than that, it fits great. I like the wooden button detail too - it makes it a little more rustic and a little less formal.
