It's almost Easter and if you're a procrastinator like me then you probably don't have anything for your little guy to wear. Yet. Go grab a onesie that fits your little man & an old skirt or pants from your garage sale pile and let's make a cute little Faux Vest Onesie!
I used Dana's flat front pants tutorial to make matching pants but I am not super thrilled at how mine turned out. I didn't give him enough room in the tush.
You will also need some paper to make your vest pattern, 2 buttons, a sewing machine, & sewing notions like thread & scissors.
Cut out 2 of your pattern from the outside fabric & 2 of an interior fabric (I used an old button down shirt). Remember the the pieces need to be mirror images so flip your pattern upside down for one side.
Then pin right sides together.Sew along all sides except the top shoulder area. That will be kept open to turn this rightside out.
Measure and mark where you want your buttons to go. I overlapped the 2 sides slightly. Then sew your buttons through both sides so that they will stay closed.
You're all done & your little man now has something spiffy to wear on Easter or just out on the town ;)
