Test the Schoolboy Vest

I got to test this fabulous pattern by Abby of Sew Much Ado, recently.


The Schoolboy Vest


It’s totally not just for boys!


BTW: Yes, I had my child do the photo shoot in the rain. Cause we live in the Pacific Northwest…and it rains more than not.


 I was assigned the welt pockets, but the pattern also has an option for faux welts. It also can be reversible. AND one of the best things is a buttonhole guide so you know where they go!


The back even has a back tie (belt).


For this vest, I over-dyed a cream-colored sheet (on purpose) this golden color and lined it with a beautiful dark blue fabric (I think Michael Miller?) that I had been saving for something special.


I also whipped up a matching skirt.


*Ignore the slouchy tights leg.


This is such a well written, easy-to-follow pattern. I love the details that make this vest really professional looking. And did I mention that buttonhole guide? I will tell you again because it is so great to have something to space the buttonholes for me! I never seem to get them evenly spaced, and now they are.


As always, it was pleasure testing such a wonderful pattern for Sew Much Ado patterns.


Thanks Abby! The pattern is so good that we willingly stood in freezing downpour for it!

Oh~ and Y is for YELLOW!

  1. that is really cute! I love how you added the skirt, that definitely makes it a school girl vest! Ah, the rain, that’s just how it is here 🙂

    1. I was super lucky to get picked. It is a great pattern. I have asked (multiple time-LOL) for her to draft one for women!
      I would totally wear it.

  2. super cute! Love the yellow. I recently made my son stand in the rain too ;o) When it is raining all week, I just can’t wait for it to stop ;o) Emily
