We Should Have Named Him Tailor

posted in: Homeschooling | 2

A few days ago I made reference to Enoch’s latest sewing  project. He decided he wanted to make  a hunter’s vest.

We checked out a book from the library with sewing projects for boys. Since it was a library book, we couldn’t cut out the actual pattern, so Enoch used the  window to  trace it onto paper.

We went to the fabric store where he picked out a camouflage print for the outside and khaki  for the inside. He was very insistent about what he wanted on his vest. He added two inside pockets, and several more D-rings than the pattern called for.

And here is the finished project. This vest included an inverted pleated pocket (which took at least an hour in and  of itself) and a zipper. Enoch spent many hours on this vest. I was the consultant,  he was the tailor. It turned out beautifully.  I love the vest, but the love new skills learned and the confidence he’s gained even more.

  1. Wow! A very talented young man.

  2. […] might recognize this vest and pants and the ones Enoch sewed when he was just nine years old! He pulled them out and let Tucker wear them for the day. It was so much fun to see him in them! […]
