    I made this for my 12 year old niece for her birthday in an adorable horsey fleece. The pattern was easy with great instructions. What I really love about Love Notions is the links to video instructions at all the tricky spots. I had never sewn a separating zipper before but had no struggles with Love Notions instructions.

    I made the view A lined version of this vest in white faux fur for my granddaughter. She made the Peanut vest for her doll. Another great pattern that’s fun to make and wear with the fun and easy doll vest for beginning sewers.
