This truly is a must have pattern for toddlers and trendy pre-teens. Make it with fleece and brushed cotton for your precious little girl or venture on to shaggy fur for your cool pre-teen! With this easy and fast pattern, your girl will be most comfortable and stylish to boot!


For the babies we insert a tab with a Kam Snap as a closure and for the older girls from 5 years of age try the cute pom-pom ties or a gorgeous rouleaux loop. The vest is fully reversible whichever method of closure you choose.


It’s versatile and great for the autumn winter and looks stunning with boots and leggings or jeans. We matched it up with the Virginia tunic. Buy both and receive a special offer when you check out.


The classic baby vest sewing pattern is aimed at the complete beginner level. The video takes it very slow and the eBook is as ever full of tips, diagrams and photos to make sure you get it right.

I absolutely love this vest pattern, I made a couple of them for my niece’s twin babies. They will be a super cute part of their gift.  I have purchased other patterns from Marina. Between the very clear patterns and video tutorials, I get so much enjoyment making each project.



I have loved every pattern I have purchased from Marina, this one included. They always make up so well and my grandchildren love wearing them.

I made a test one first to determine if slim or regular was best fit for my 6 year old granddaughter.  It came together quickly and was very cute.  I then made a fashionable one using faux fur lined with brush cotton.  She loves it.



Types of Fabric:

This dress is fitted and you don't want it to be too loose fitting. If you are making this dress for a special occasion such as a wedding reception, dance or other big festivities, I would choose a gorgeous Dupion silk. But for a lovely summer dress you need something more comfortable. To achieve this, choose a cotton sateen with around 3 % Lycra or Elastan. Sateen is not the same as satin! Satin drapes very well and sateen does not. It has a subtle sheen but creates a more structural silhouette. This works especially well with pleated skirts. Check out the customer gallery to see what they have created with the most gorgeous fabrics.
