New Vest

Simplicity 2534 Vest OptionsMy husband picked out an orange dot fabric during a trip to Interquilten, an adorable quilting shop in northern Michigan. (See my Interquilten¬†post.) Although cute, I thought, “What am I going to do with this?! And here is the result. I used Simplicity 2534 and the vest came together very quickly. I didn’t even pin the binding that goes around the entire vest and armholes. I figured by sewing slowly I could save time. This approach worked pretty well. I do not invest the same amount of effort for kids’ clothes as I do for my own.

Daughter dress
Dress for my girl

Check out the dress I’ve been working on for my daughter. (It’s 90% finished.) While at Interquilten, she picked out this “horsey” fabric (ongoing obsession). My husband picked out material for the contrast waistband. It’s based on Simplicity 3588. I made the sleeveless view because she’ll wear a turtleneck or long-sleeve shirt for fall.
Yee haw!
