Boys Formal Waistcoat Vest Revamp.....

When op shopping I frequently see little boy waistcoat vests selling for next to nothing. I imagine they are often bought for a formal occasion like a wedding or christening and never worn again by these little men. So when I saw a little waistcoat vest with a weird bunny appliqué on it recently I knew there was a revamping project in the waiting.

So with a few buttons and some off cuts of denim and a needle and thread, I was in business and whipped up this little revamp number whilst watching TV. I even used a bright red thread to stitch on the denim on the pocket trim and the feature piece down and over his shoulder .


I'm really pleased with the result, and so is Cohen with him eager to wear it whenever he can. I will definitely buying more boys formal vests overtime and customising them. It's such a great idea for injecting a bit of personality into something that may not off seen much wear in it's original state, it would also make a unique gift for a little guy, don't you think?
