While looking for a vest pattern for my 16 month old's Halloween costume, I was worried about how much of a hassle this project was going to be. I was overwhelmed at first glace, but the pattern could not have been easier to understand and follow along with! I love that there's no need for interfacing or other difficult materials; the woven fabric holds its shape will due to the top stitching. I opted not to add buttons and will be using snaps instead, making the pattern just a smidge easier. I also didn't use the tie for the costume, but with how easy the vest was I can see revisiting this pattern to make both pieces in the future.
