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.
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.
