Vance’s Sweater Vest – Create Kids Couture

I was so excited to be able to test the Vance’s Sweater Vests from Create Kids Couture! The Vance’s Sweater Vest is available in sizes newborn through 18/24 monthssizes 2T through 8, and in a tween version in sizes 7/8 through 15/16. The sweater vest is intended for use with sweater fleece or sweater knit. This sweater vest is perfect for all the boys and young men in your life.

I tested two different sizes. My 6 year old is wearing the size 7, and my 8 year old is wearing a 7/8. The sizing for both was spot on for my measurements. My boys happen to love dressing up for Mass on Sundays, and this sweater vest is a great addition to their wardrobes. 03-DSCN6492.JPG

I was nervous before testing this pattern because I have never sewn a V-neck before. However, the instructions were clear and concise, and the pictures were great and easily understandable. The V-necks turned out great and professional-looking.  I used an argyle sweater fleece and coordinating solid from Hancock Fabrics, and I’ve already purchased more sweater fleece in a different color to make more!

My boys and I spent the afternoon up at our State Capitol taking pictures, and they received many compliments on their vests! My 5 year old loves the vests so much that he keeps stealing my 6 year old’s and wearing it. I guess it’s time to make him one of his own.
