This pattern is from an old Patrones magazine issue of kids clothes. It’s a basic princess-seam vest with a shawl collar and a bit of a racer-back cut in the back. My daughter picked out the fabrics herself. I managed (barely) to remember to add seam-allowances, otherwise it might not have gone so well, but I think it turned out pretty cute, especially for not being able to read the instructions. The fabric was all knits and really very wrong for the style, but it worked out all right.
