Stellar’s Vest | A New Pattern from Elegance & Elephants
Stellar’s Vest is the newest pattern from Elegance & Elephants! (*Affiliate link.) I love this classic, versatile wardrobe staple. There is an option for a pocket, and a dress version!
I used a twin needle around the v-neck, waist band, and sleeve openings. (I could tell Sofie appreciated all the precision.)
I’ve been struggling to get photos with all the snow storms. Snow is pretty, but after it’s partially melted and refrozen a few times, you end up with a muddy, gross mess.
But hubby donated his carport where he parks the trailers and some of the big machines. He raked and made it look as nice as red Oklahoma dirt can :)
I thought the mustard yellow double knit fabric I used for my vest would look great and stand out with against the other chambray button up and neutral tones in her outfit.
I wanted sort of androgynous look; because Stellar’s Vest is a great pattern for boys and girls. So my goal was to “show” the pattern really well, and get some great family photos too.
We started with a newsboy cap. Sofie didn’t like it because her brothers told her the hat was for a boy.
So I switched the hat out for a head band, & she was a happy girl after that!
*Here’s an updated photo; almost a year later. Same shirt and vest. Crazy how they grow, right?!
