Hi guys! I am so excited to share my denim vest with you! This has seriously been a dream project of mine. I have been on a quest for a mint denim vest for years! Seriously, why are pastel denim vests so hard to find?!
Since I couldn’t find a mint vest to buy, I knew I should just sew one myself (duh!). So when Alina released her Hampton Jacket pattern I jumped on the chance to try it out!
When I heard that Cloud 9 was coming out with organic pastel denim I pretty much died and went to heaven! The sea glass color was the PERFECT shade of mint green for my dream vest!
I’m not gonna lie, I was pretty intimidated by the idea of this project. I consider myself a fairly advanced sewist, but this was by far the most complicated pattern I’ve ever sewn. Lucky for me, Alina has an AMAZING sewalong on her blog that takes you step by step through the pattern! She has awesome photos as well as tips and tricks. Reading it completely put my mind at ease and gave me the confidence to jump in start sewing!
