Little Lizard Vest
Technically finished last year, but recorded as the first for 2011, a vest from a yet-to-be-released Little Lizard Vest pattern modeled by now fully walking/running/chasing over his big brother, Jordan.
This was my first 'test' sewing which meant that I was supplied the pattern to sew and supply feedback to the designer. There were a couple of suggestions I made to improve the pattern.
The vest fully reversible with denim on one side with bleach features (made by sewing small darts and then rubbing with a small amount of bleach) and a small applique car. The other fabric has a car print. It was the first time I have ever made covered buttons which is hard to believe. Apart from being a bit fiddly and the denim too thick, they are a great idea especially for boys as it is hard to find nice boy buttons.
Car fabric: Sewco
Denim fabric: Gardams
