Yes, I realize I'm late in finishing and posting this week's gift for the handmade holiday challenge. But look what I was doing!
Making a reversible outfit!
I was asked to be a pattern tester for Little Lizard King Patterns newest reversible vest pattern. This was such an easy, fun pattern to sew. Perfect for dressing up over the holidays. I knew I wanted to try it with menswear fabrics.
The pants I made to match are also reversible. One side is flannel suiting, the other is brown plaid. All fabrics are from JoAnn's. I made the pants reversible by making 2 pairs of pants, and sewing them wrong sides together, folding under the edges to meet. Then I inserted elastic for the waistband. The patch pockets are made using this tutorial found on MADE.
This will be so cute for Thanksgiving. I'm not sure which side I like best. All he needs now is a scali cap to complete this outfit I think.
I just found this pattern Etsy that would look so cute with this. I can't believe it's reversible too! I like that it comes in a wide range of sizes. I think I have to get that one.
I promised him a lolipop for modeling!
UPDATE: This pattern is now available at Little Lizard King's Etsy shop! I'll have to tell Travis that he had a brief modeling career!
