The Time Traveller Vest by Ainslee Fox for One Thimble E-zine

I know, I know.  Time Traveller.  My spell check doesn’t like the Aussie spelling either.  But I’m honoring the many differences that are represented in the PDF world and trying to spell it right for the fabulous Ms. Jen, who is the talented designer behind Ainslee Fox and this amazing vest you’re about to see.

So, now that I’ve got that out of the way, when I mention “time traveler” and “vest” in the same sentence, you seriously have to be thinking of Marty McFly and the old town clock tower and crazy Doc Brown, the DeLorian, flux capacitor, and 1.21 gigawatts.  Nevermind the fact that he went back in time 30 years and next year will be the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future.  Mind blown.

Obviously this is not a clock tower, but I thought it was a cool, historical place for a photo shoot.  I’ve always been a history buff, so I really wanted to think about where we did this!  You can read more about the Heigold Facade in Lousiville, Kentucky HERE.

If you remember, in last week’s post, I showed you this sweet little shift dress from Ainslee Fox Designs.  I loved that little dress and I can tell you that this Time Traveller Vest is just as fun and gorgeous, although a little more handsome.

My son was SO excited when he learned that I was making something just for him!  I made him a vest for Easter last year and he’s pretty much been begging me to make another one ever since.  I went back to my Parson Gray stash again, and this time pulled out my coveted World Tour Linen.  Swoon.  This stuff is amazing and it was beautiful fabric to pair with this pattern.

This vest has so many fun details.  I got another chance to practice my welt pockets (nailed it!) and also learned a fun new way to add a facing to the front and neck of the vest.  It has a nice, relaxed fit and even has a belt in the back for a more fitted look.  The vest is fully lined and just like with the Twist Shift Dress, the techniques are pure perfection and the results are just gorgeous.

This is casual enough for jeans, but it would look great with a pair of khakis or even some crisp linen pants for the summer.

We even got a few broody poses from him.  This guy cracks.me.up.

So now you’re just DYING to know where you can get this vest, right?  You can purchase this vest pattern as a part of the One Thimble E-zine Issue 2, which I highly recommend.  I seriously want to sew ALL THE PATTERNS!  You can also purchase the Time Traveller Vest as a stand alone pattern.  Either way, you are getting an amazing pattern from Ainslee Fox Designs.  I am definitely a new fan!  I think this guy is, too!

  1. I was really excited to see this, but when I went and looked at their site, it only goes up to 8. It is good to see more boys patterns. I hope that more independant companies continue to make boys clothes and have larger sizes available.

  2. I really love your fabric choices, they are unique and the whole outfit looks awesome. I haven’t looked at their e-zine so I’ll go check it out!

    • Thanks so much! The pockets are easy-peasy! This was my first (or second, maybe?) time with welt pockets and Jen, the designer at Ainslee Fox has great pics and instructions in her patterns. One of my favorite new-to-me designers!
