The vest is a gift for a fishing friend. I found a pattern online but ended up using a blue jean vest as my guide for size. I rounded the front edges to look more like a fisherman’s vest. The pockets were all created from the pattern I found. I added two big inside pockets (for beer) and lined the front ones with checkerboard print.
For the bucket hats, I used the same gray cotton twill but lined them with a fish patterned fabric. I used black grosgrain in one and tan in the other to tell them apart. The hats are for his 2 boys. I got the hat pattern from my Hawaiian shirt project – it happened to be included.
