Elisa from Charming Doodle made this reversible quilted vest for her son’s fall wardrobe. Like most boys’ clothing, it’s all about the details with this vest. Leather trim gives it a shot of “cool”, and a flap is a nice detail over a pocket. And the grid quilting appears on only one layer, so when you reverse it you get two decidedly different looks. She shares a tutorial over at The Sewing Rabbit showing how she made the pocket flap. And over on her own blog, she is shows how to do the quilting. Go to The Sewing Rabbit for her flap pocket tutorial. Go to Charming Doodle for the quilting tutorial.
