Sewing Tutorial: Kids dress up ideas - construction vest

This pattern fits a 2-4 year old.

You will need:

Orange polycotton (I may have used slightly more than half a meter).
Grey felt

Print out the paper pattern (Piece 1 and Piece 2). It will print as two A4 pieces and need to be joined with tape to make one A3 sized piece. Then cut out the pattern shape.

The outside line (centre back) should placed on the fold and one piece cut to make the back. Then follow the inner line and cut two pieces to form the front. You will also need to cut the grey felt in strips 2-3cm wide.

Sew the grey felt strips onto the orange vest pieces in the position indicated on the pattern. Then sew together at the shoulders and down the sides.


Cut out strips of orange 4cm wide on the diagonal and make bias binding. That is, fold over in half lengthwise and iron flat and then fold the edges in to the centre and iron flat again. Sew this binding along all raw edges. 

And done!
