I hope you’re having fun with the FLIP Vest Pattern. Some of you have shared your versions with me and I love it! If you have a vest to share….add it to the youMADEit Flickr group, or Instagram me a photo at @danamadeit, or if it’s boyish add it to the Celebrate the BOY Flickr group!
And speaking of boys….
Boy oh boy I’ve been sewing all week. Got some fun stuff to share with you starting Monday!
Okay on to the FREE part of this post.
Before releasing a pattern, I always have a few people test it out for me and provide feedback. And seriously, their feedback is invaluable. Their suggestions totally made the pattern better for me and you.
And today three of them are sharing Pattern Reviews and Giveaways on their site!….starting with a totally girly version by Maggie of Smashed Peas and Carrots. Isn’t her daughter a doll? Her expression is killing me. And she’s got a secret fabric inside her vest…..
Kristin from Skirt as Top made a cool old-timey version with black linen and buttons down the front. You gotta head over to see the front…..and her adorable O.
Then if you really want to amp it up, check out what Miranda at One Little Minute did! She added snaps, pockets, zippers, different pockets on each side, four options! It’s a vest full of surprises! And cute little models to show them off.
So that’s 3 reviews, 3 giveaways, 3 patterns per giveaway.
Here, Here, and Here.
