Thyme Vest Pattern by Paisley Roots - One Thimble Magazine 14

Hello-hello everyone!

New year, new blog for this girl. 🎉 I let my old blog expire at the beginning of last year for many reasons. I honestly wasn't sure that I even wanted to have a blog again but realized this past year that I miss having one quite a bit! So here we are....

Let's talk about the new Thyme Vest pattern by Paisley Roots - available in the One Thimble 14 Magazine. I love how it turned out and am really excited for spring to hurry up and get here so my little girl can wear it!

The fabrics I used were all from Joann's. They had several color options at my store, I am anxious to make a trip to town again to get some of the navy!

I ended up sourcing the zippers on Etsy. I ordered #567 & #566. All of the hardware came from Joann's as well. They have these cute little kits specifically for Anorak Jackets/Vests.

I made two changes to the pattern. The first was adding the flap pockets - I love flap pockets and thought they would look cute with this style vest. Karly (the designer) will be adding a tutorial for these pockets on her blog to achieve this look as well! The second change was to omit the pocket lining. I finished all edges by serger, folding under the top as you would normally do with a pocket and then topstitching. I did this primarily so the lining would not be visible along the folded pocket edges. Due to the drastic contrast in the color of my lining and main fabric, I felt it would show much more than if my fabrics were of similar colors. :)

I layered this vest with the Mingo & Grace Crop Top. I modified by sizing down for use with Ponte and omitting all back closures. I then added a peplum bottom. Although Joni isn't the biggest fan of black, she really loved this top and asked for a second. Of course, she keeps pointing to a knit floral I am hoarding for myself....back away from my floral child!

The back features a sweet curved hem.

Sizing was very accurate to the size chart.

Size sewn: 3T/1" added to length.
Stats: 22.5" chest, 20" waist, 22" hips, height 47".

All-in-all, I love this pattern and will most definitely be making it for many years to come. <3
