Faux Fur Vest - KCW Winter 2014

kid's clothes week

It's here again!  And I'm so glad it is!  I've been out of my sewing groove for a little while now, enjoying instead heaps of crocheting adventures and home improvements.  This is exactly the motivation I needed.  

About two years ago I made my son a bear halloween costume.  I've been hanging onto some extra faux fur fabric ever since.  

I'm so glad I finally found a good use for it!   

My husband said she looks like a "mountain man," Ha!!  She is a rough and tumble lady who loves the outdoors and getting dirty, so I think it's kind of fitting.

This pattern was self drafted using a puffy vest my daughter already owns.  

I'm still deciding if I want to add a snap closure to the front.  While there is not a collar that goes all the way around, the front flaps open to make it look like there is one.  The bottom of the front of the vest also curves outward from the center - somewhat like a suit vest.  It is hard to see in these photos.

The vest is completely reversible and has faux fur/a yellow cotton on in the inside.  I'll try to add a picture of it reversed soon.  

I'm very happy with the results, and so is my cute lady.  Win-win!


  1. I love, love, love this and totally want to make one for Anna! :)
