    LOVE this pattern for my little guy! He’ll be wearing his for Thanksgiving dinner – the fit is fantastic, and since it’s sized for knits it is nice and comfy. I made mine from a thick interlock, and can’t wait to try one in velour, too! Thanks for an awesome freebie!

    I made this for my Missy 3 and it’s so comfy! The fit is spot-on and she really enjoys wearing it.
    Instructions are clear as always for Love Notions patterns.
    Will definitely be making more in future. Thanks for making this awesome pattern free!

    Another fantastic pattern. Instructions were very detailed as usual. Made for my 8 year old son. Can’t believe its a free pattern. I have similar vest patterns that I actually paid for that are not even close.

    Fantastic Pattern. I love that this one goes right up to the bigger sizes, not just for little children. And it can be used for both girls and boys. Thank you for making this one FREE for us.

    I made this vest for part my son’s dressy holiday outfit when he was 2. I used a slightly shimmery Raschel nylon spandex, to match his sisters’ dresses. It came together quickly and easily, and fit just like I expected. It has continued to be a favorite item in his wardrobe for many months.

    Cutest little vest for boys and girls! Used it to make a safety vest for part of a costume for my 4YO grandson. He thought it was “cool, nana!” Thumbs up for sure!

    Fabulous little pattern! This was my first Love Notions pattern.
    -layered PDF!! This means I can print ONLY the size I need, which saves ink and simplifies using the pattern
    -Putting the pattern together was a cinch: lay it down; tape it; done.
    -The cut pieces fit together precisely.
    -The pattern was easily completed in less than an hour
    -The vest was true to size. Size 6 fits my 6yo that wears a 6 in store bought clothing.
    -Comfy garment!
    -Free! Dude.

    I didn’t read the actual sewing instructions, so I won’t comment on that part.

    -I honestly can’t think of any.

    Two hearty thumbs up. I’d definitely recommend it. I will be a repeat customer.

    So adorable. Got it for my girls to wear over plain tops. As usual, the instructions are very well written and easy to follow.
