Early in our planning I searched for inspiration so I could show Mr. Poodle my ideas for his outfit. We both liked the idea of something really casual, and he decided he would like to wear a vest instead of suspenders (our first choice), so he left the search in my hands. But, I couldn’t find anything I 100% liked. That’s why I decided to make his vest myself!
I wanted to make something for the guys, since I’m making the dresses for all my bridesmaids. So this was the perfect project; it’s very simple and *hopefully* cute!
I found the exact fabric I wanted at Jo-Ann’s, and I used an online coupon so in the end the materials were really cheap (about $30.00 for materials to make 5 vests).
And as soon as we got home I started cutting. I used one of Mr. Poodle’s old vests as my pattern for the shape, because I didn’t like the pockets that one had.
First I cut all of the pieces, one for the back and two for the front.
(I’m using a solid darker brown for the back, and in person it’s not as shiny as in the pictures. Damn flash! )
Then I cut two strips and I sewed them to the back. I’m planning on adding 2 buttons, one on each end of the back strips.
This was the first fitting,Cheap Louis Vuitton Handbags & Louis Vuitton 2015 Bags, to see how the back fit. There are no pockets yet, but I did mark where he wanted them with pins.
After that I cut a straight line and sewed two pieces on each side of the cut.
Here you can see the two pieces already sewed on to the front. TA DA! A pocket!
I sewed the edges and closed the pockets on the inside.
I though it looked very nice but I wanted to add a little secret detail, so on the inside of the left side I stitched this: TE AMO (I love you)
And since it looked kind of lonely I decided to enclose it in a heart.
Here the final result after sewing all the edges of the vest:
Here the final fitting where we decided I’m going to put 4 buttons on the front (it’s going to look better with the buttons),Cheap Louis Vuitton best bags – Louis Vuitton for sale.
And this is how the TE AMO looks on the inside! Mr. Poodle really likes it and he didn’t see it until the very last fitting,Louis Vuitton Bags,Louis Vuitton Outlet, so it was a cool surprise!
Are you taking your groom’s wedding day look into your own hands? Are you personalizing his outfit in any way?
