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.
I also chose to eliminate buttons. Not only did I save time, but I think it’s also safer for the baby.
I hope everyone had a nice 4th of July weekend!
