I bought a Simplicity pattern to help me with the basics. I bought Simplicity 5154. I made some changes to the pattern because I wanted something a little different.
- When I cut the pattern, I made it 6" longer so it would cover my hubby's legs
- Instead of making the ties out of fabric, I took the easy way out. I bought belting! Cheaper and much easier
- The belting I put around the neck, I made it about 1" longer, since my hubby likes everything loose
- Finally, I had leftover insul-bright. Why waste it? I made the two pockets lined with insul-bright. Great for keeping beer cold and in a pinch they can be used as pot holders!
