The idea was to add an extra layer without additional bulk through the upper body and sleeve. The end result is part vest, part apron, it's reversible and definitely keeps my middle section warm. Throw over a cute little cardigan and you're all set.
The BIB sewing pattern is available from my Etsy shop in Australian sizes 8-14, for international customers a size conversion chart can be found right here.
The polka dot stretch canvas was found at Tessuti in Melbourne. A version for little girls with frills and floral binding is also in the works so stay tuned mother of tween.
