Dashing Vest in French Terry

I had the opportunity to try out some fabric from Water Tower Textiles, a new Canadian fabric shop. 
Now, so you know, I did receive the fabric for free in exchange for a review, be it good or bad. 
This is my own honest opinion of the fabric. 

One of my sons likes to layer his clothes and will often be wearing two shirts. 
I thought it'd be a good time to sew him a vest so he can layer a little more stylishly.
I chose the Dashing Vest (a FREE! pattern) from Love Notions. (affiliate links)


It's a quick sew in a wide range of sizes: 12 months to 14! 
Snaps make it even faster. 
I debated putting buttons or snaps on it and then finally asked my son what he'd prefer...snaps it was. 


The fabric I used is from Water Tower Textiles.
The fabric washes up nice the first wash. I have to see how it holds up to a large number of washings yet, to give it a fair review. 
The ribbing comes in a tube, and I did have to piece the ribbing together in the back to get the right length for the neckline/front for the size 7. 
The French Terry is warm and soft--perfect for a fall day.

  1. Very nice look! I made my toddler son a Dashing Vest for his dressy holiday outfit last year, and he loved it so much he requested I make another in blue French terry...which I still haven't gotten around to doing, oops.
