Harem coverall : 97

Hooded vest for fall! Pattern 95

Can you tell how jazzed she is with her new vest??  :)  I love it too. It's one of my all-time favorites in fact!  I made it in a few different types of fabric.  A sweatshirt knit, a medium weight jersey and an interlock.  It worked well in all three but I think I like the [...]
