that is really adorable.  my son loves vests--i think they are less constricting.  I'm just happy to layer him up against the cold!

even measurements of a child would be handy really,
like how big is a neck around?
measurements from waist to neck, underarm to waist, chest and waist measurements
its really hard without a child to measure against,

I made a skirt last night for what i think a 4 year old girl looks like, but its just crazy,
i could send it halfway across the country and it may be hopeless in size,

That sounds flusterating. Hmmm, I used to have a link to chart of such things ... lemme think. I will post the link if I can find it.

Here it is ...  but it does not have neck sizes http://www.vertbaudet.co.uk/Static/Static.aspx?page=SizeGuide1

I use marthastewart's hat size chart -- it is a super long link so search for fleece hats if the link doesn't work: http://www.marthastewart.com/portal/site/mslo/menuitem.3a0656639de62ad593598e10d373a0a0/?vgnextoid=14ce76ecfd22f010VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&autonomy_kw=fleece%20hats&rsc=header_1

consider yourself hugged women!
now just those last two measurements,
how long is a little chap from neck to waist, and from underarm to waist,
so I dont make the vest dress length!

Hmmm -- the vest itself I can measure right not, whereas the boy is moving too fast!

Shaggy Man Vest
I used fairly thin fleece -- perhaps the lighter end of medium weight? I think that makes the vest drape rather well, perhaps heavier fleece would be too bulky? T'was sale polar fleece from JoAnn's. The fleece is doubled.

When I made mine I cut one front half that I liked from paper then used it to make the (4) front pieces and the (2) back pieces but where I curved the bottom of the front pieces I left the bottom of the back pieces squared off (straight edge).

Cut the front vest shapes from: (4) 13 tall x 8.25 wide rectangles
Cut the back of the vest shapes from: (2) 13 tall x 16.5 rectangle

The bottom of the armholes is 7 inches from the bottom of the vest. Armhole depth: From button-up edge of the right hand front piece to the start of the J shaped armhole is 5.5 inches.

I just made a sketch but my daughter is defacing, er, I mean, modifying it! I will post a picture after dinner as things are getting a little shaky around here! I think the sketch would help quite a bit, but didn't want to keep Aunty S waiting any longer if she was fired up to go!



(PS Who IS the Shaggy Man? A character from L Frank Baum's OZ stories ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Shaggy_Man
