The Schoolboy vest is a classic vest pattern for boys (or girls if you want to mix it up a bit)…never mind that, it's a unisex pattern, let's not kid ourselves, just as many girls like this look as boys. The pattern includes options for welt pockets or faux welt pockets (which is what I tested here) and also includes an optional adjustable back tie.
Can you tell he's happy about the lining?! So let's have a quick run down on the fabric shall we? For the outside I used a light/medium weight suiting fabric with pinstripes that I grabbed at my Fabricland (again no actual details but here's a similar option here). And on the inside, I went with Alexander Henry's Enchantment in Smoke Grey (found here), which I grabbed at my local quilt shop.
This guy, is too darn happy about his vest! Which is great, because it pushed me to start sewing for the boys a bit more, I'll be making another one for L soon since I have a ton of that suiting material left :)
