Body warmer

I love body warmers so I really had to make one for Koko 😉  I used a simple vest pattern (in this case from Ottobre 2012/3) with a hood and no sleeves. I took a size bigger because it has to fit over her clothes. Also the puffy filling makes it a tighter fit.

It’s reversible but I couldn’t find a zipper that works both ways… so now it kinda isn’t… I didn’t like the yellow dots fabric as much as the grey doves but it looks neat on the inside.

(Note to myself: In the future I really should take more ‘work in progress’ pictures to show you how I made it… 😉 ) I hope this is still helpful for you and if it isn’t; just scroll down to the last picture which is the cutest anyway!

I’ve cut al the panels twice; one for the outside and one for the lining, because you have to sew two vests. To make it a bit more interesting I included a paspel, label and an application on the outside vest.

On to the inside vest (yellow dots) I attached the filling and ribbing fabric.

I used the same way of sewing this together as the summer jacket. In this post you can find a very helpful tutorial about how to sew a reversible vest with hood and zipper (which I also used for this body warmer). At the end I’ve stitched trough the body warmer to keep the filling at it’s place.
