Little Monkey and I love going to playgrounds and parks. Her denim Little Red Riding Hood jacket still fits just fine, but I wanted to make her something else. She is an adventurous little girl, and her clothes needs to be washed often. She needed something that could be layered, something that would shield her from the wind but would not be too hot to wear in the sun. I loved the vests that Suz and Jen made for their daughters. They both used The Woolen Vest, a free pattern by Little Kiwis Closet. I thought a little vest like that would be perfect for our early spring!
So, While she was sleeping, I made a hooded vest for my Little Monkey.
Gotta love a garment that can be sewn in one night and warn the next day!
I used fleece for the outer layer and quilting cotton for lining. Large wooden buttons completed the look.
I love the hemline, the rounded edges and the shape of the hood. Lydia has done a terrific job designing this pattern. It was a fun quick sew, and the result is funky, practical and comfortable. This is a perfect vest for active little monkeys.
Thank you Lydia for sharing this wonderful pattern with the sewing community!
