Completed: Noah’s Vest (and Pants. Again.)

Finally got around to hitting up the fabric store for lining fabric for Noah’s vest that was cut out and ready to sew up.  About $70 later, and two large bags of fabric (hey!  there was a sale!  how can I help it?), I actually got back to the sewing machine and churned out this.

I’ve adapted it from the Out-On-The-Town Jacket from Sewing for Boys again like I did for the Small Fry’s version only this time I brought the neckline lower.  Actually, I think I liked it higher up so next time I’ll probably adjust that again.  I used heavy duty metal snaps on this one again (thank goodness for no-sew!  plus, the boys love it when I get out a hammer to “sew” them something!  🙂 ).

I also took another look at Noah’s pants to fix the length.  After taking the cuffs part way out and re-sewing them so that they became really narrow cuffs, I got him to try them on and they were still not long enough.  So I got out the rotary cutter, cut the cuffs off entirely and chucked them.  Then I cut out 2 new pieces and sewed on a new, wider cuff.  Much better!  This length should actually last a few months!  🙂
