Feeling Sheepish

At Halloween I wanted to make a giant sheep’s costume, complete with jacket and pants and a sheep cap.

But when I found the fabric I wanted, the total fabric required came to over $100. So I scaled back and bought just enough for a vest. There is some virtue to finishing things that you start, and since I had finally finished the three-block-breastplate t-shirt I started earlier, I figured I was nearly there. I had never made a vest before, but the pattern seemed pretty simple: four pieces–two fronts, a back, and a collar.
