Jon's Wedding Vest

 Jon is my son.

Jon and Brittney are to be married on April 20, 2013 in our beautiful and small rural community of North Garden Virginia.  The wedding is to be held in our hayfield.  There will be plenty of room to set up a tent, to seat 200+ guests, for kids to run around, for dancing in the moonlight and sleeping under the stars by guests too tired to drive home. 
Last week Jon asked me “Mom will you make my vest for the wedding?  "I'd love to!" I told him.

I made most of Jon's clothes when he was a little boy.  We didn't have a lot of money, and I loved to sew....still do.  Jon and his brother Cam3 wanted to be a cowboys, a soldiers, explorers and Superman.  I made clothes and costumes for every occasion, but this....a wedding vest is this mother's dream come true.
How many Moms get an opportunity to sew for their adult children, especially boys?  I would guess not very many.  I am a lucky Mom.
