School vests for boys: how to quickly and easily prepare your baby for school
As you know, in most schools, students wear uniforms. But what to do if it's hot in your jacket.
In this case, a vest comes in handy. In order to sew it you need:
- Pattern of a vest for a boy. You can draw it yourself. And if this is not yet within your power, then you can use the ready-made version from the needlework magazine;
- Main fabric;
- Lined fabric;
- Several buttons.
Pay attention to the fabric. Remember that it must be tight. But don't even look at flying, flowing and other light materials, just waste your money. Wool fabric, leather or leatherette, durable jeans, knitwear are perfect for sewing.
Attention! Any jersey will not suit you, you need to choose only dense types that can keep their shape. Also suitable fora variety of water-repellent fabrics. These include a balloon, raincoat and nylon.
Vest lining pattern
If you already have a pattern for a vest, then now you should think about the lining. In order to cut it out, you need to take a ready-made back template and make a lining pattern on it, adding two centimeters in width beforehand.
This is to prevent the lining from pulling on the base fabric. In the future, we will lay these two extra centimeters in the fold in the middle of the back, along the line of the bottom and piping of the neck.
Attention! When creating a lining pattern, keep in mind that you also need to add one centimeter for the seams. Otherwise, the sewn item will be small in size.
How to sew a vest according to the pattern for a 7 year old boy
The first thing you need to do is cut out the necessary elements of the future vest according to the pattern. After that we make a middle seam. You also need to grind the shoulder cuts. In order for the fabric to lay down better, it is recommended to iron all allowances. Then repeat the shoulder and middle seam on the lining.
We pin the lining to the main fabric with the help of special pins and sew it along the line of the lower cuts, back, sides, neck and armholes of the front. At the same time, do not forget that the extra two centimeters should be hidden in a fold in the middle of the back.
And at the end of the sewing process, you need to sew all the side cuts. After your vest is ready, sew a few loops and buttons in the front. So the vest for your baby is ready.
By the way, if you want, you can decorate the product with some pretty embroidery. But do not forget to discuss the pattern with the child before that, because the thing is for him and not for you!
Children's padded vests for boys

- Lay out a layer of padding polyester on a flat surface and cover it with a raincoat fabric;
