Free Sewing Pattern : Hansel & Gretel Quilted Vest


The FREE child's size 6/7 Hansel & Gretel Quilted Vest sewing pattern is now available. Hansel's Stylo vest was the original inspiration, but I've simplified and refined a few things along the way to accommodate the tutorial format (rather than a full on printed pattern format). My goal with this design is to create a basic vest pattern that is easily altered to create infinite variations. 

The Hansel & Gretel Quilted Vest is a fully lined, quilted vest, with patch pockets and a snap front closure. The pattern consists of a single size, 9 page PDF download (found here). The instructions (found here) are sew along style and available here. The finished chest is 31 1/2", the finished shoulder to hem is 16 1/2".

Creating a pattern this involved is a new challenge for me and I would love your feedback. I'm hoping to crowd source the pattern development process, and give myself a little push along learning curve. Please send all mistakes, suggestions and constructive criticism to sweetkm1[at]yahoo[dot]com.

    1. Thanks Ute! I'm thinking about sizing it, but have a ton of other things to cross off my list first. Things like your secret valentine exchange!
