The first thing she did, was give me this op-shopped mens jacket, from which she was hoping to have a vest made for her 2 year old son, to wear at the wedding. It has a rustic/vintage/handmade theme running through the wedding & it's decor, so it made sense to thrift & repurpose something.
And of course, there was more than enough fabric for the project. And the vintage buttons were from my friend's late nan's button stash, which is so very special.
I had actually never made a boy's vest before, so that was a new challenge for me. And now that I have made one, with success, I see a few more vests on my making horizon!
And even better than having met the new challenge - my friend absolutely loved it, it fit and her son loved it too. Couldn't ask for a better result!
Next wedding projects to finish are various buntings, and a tie for her little man. Fun, fun!
