Baby Shower Gift: 12 Vests for Each Month of the First Year

gigi fourth of july 2014 vest

Can you remember a childhood fashion mistake? Not that it was a real mistake, because you did mean to wear it. But rather something so badly put together you wish your mother would have stopped you before you got out the door.

 I can certainly remember mine – and my sister Tess’. My sister really liked to wear vests. There was a period of time when she would always wear handmade holiday vests (which my mom made her). She literally had a drawer full of different cotton vests for each season/holiday of the year.

So when it was time to make something for Tess’ baby shower gift, I knew exactly what I was going to make her baby – HANDMADE FESTIVE VESTS!

I made a vest for each month of the first year. And since the vests are all reversible, there are really 24 different vest options. I originally planned on embroidering “1 Month, 2 months…etc” on each vest, but decided not to.

Every print has a story behind it.

I also chose to eliminate buttons. Not only did I save time, but I think it’s also safer for the baby.

    What a fun and adorable gift! Love them all, but especially the book fabric. Where did you find that?

      Thanks!!! I bought it from a local quilt store. I’m not sure what the brand was.
