I left off the buttons because the vest will most likely be worn open and besides, he can't do buttons yet.
It's size 3.
Getting carried away with iron-on transfer paper, we also copy/pasted a Smokey badge. His dad loves anything Smokey the Bear so we know he'll enjoy this.
On one of the pockets, I put a little strap to hang a bug finder box.
The d-ring comes in handy for hanging a compass.
I got carried away in a toy store and bought a bunch of "adventure" items and attached them to lanyards and a big carabiner.
There's a plastic Swiss army set, a flashlight, a drink bottle, a whistle and a compass.
My guess is he'll play with these and not bother much with the vest :)
The lining sure suits the vest.
The vest turned out well and I hope he finds it useful when he goes on an adventure in the woods.
