Make a vest for your special guy that looks super fly. The Boy Vest is a great tutorial if you want to make clothes but need detailed instructions. On top of the general shape of the vest, the instructions also include directions on adding an embellishment with felt diamonds to give an argyle effect. This is an excellent craft for a beginner seamstress. The DIY vest makes for a great, quick idea when you've run out of ideas for boys. There has never been a classier boy's clothes pattern available.

I can not remember how many boys vest I have made for my boys big and small. I love making my own because you can control the color and the fabric you use. I have made them in cotton and satin and you can even make felt ones for dress up. They are really so easy and fun to make and once you get the hang of it you will be making many of them.I have never put a applique on one yet but that will be my next on. So instead of going searching for a vest you need for that boy do yourself a favor and head to your fabric store and check out the fabrics. You will be glad you did.
