Do you ever experiment? I do, all the time. Usually with food, sometimes with sewing. Sometimes my experiments work and sometimes they don't. This is one time it did. And I'm pretty chuffed about it.
I took my Make It Perfect kids vest pattern (from Toni's book) and instead of putting a collar on it I added a hood! Instead of padding it with pellon and making it reversible I lined the body with polar fleece and for the hood used some purple flannel. I love it!
This is for little Bella for her birthday. She is one of Williams best friends. She has juvenile arthritis and has an aversion to wearing clothes with sleeves and pants. I'm hoping the vest might help keep her a bit warmer while she scoots around on her new pink scooter she got from her mum and dad.
