All You Need is A Vest

The key to successfully dressing for the weather, especially in the fall, is layers.  And if we are talking about layers all you need is a vest and everything is right in the world.  If that vest is plaid flannel with a sherpa lining there really isn’t anything better.

When I saw the Hero Vest by Make it Perfect, it was just calling to be a part of my wardrobe.  Without even realizing it, I actually picked out fabric just like the pattern pictures on the website.

Kid’s Clothes Week – Day 1

If I had known it would be so much fun I would have participated in Kids Clothes Week so much sooner.  As I headed off to preschool with my oldest this morning all I could think about it would be a few hours before I could get started on my sewing for the day.  Once school was over I convinced the kiddos to play for a bit so I could make my first project of the week, the Sleepy Robe by Melly Sews.  Let me just start by saying what a great pattern this is.  Not only did she offer this pattern up to everyone for free, score!, but it is a quick and easy sew.  Start to finish it probably took me about an hour, but I know that is mostly because it was the first time I had done the pattern.
