Violet Vest Visit!

This is the front of the vest. I think you can see that I used all the fabrics I used in the vest for the binding. I sewed them together and did a bias binding which allows you to shape the binding to the curves.

Here you can see the back. You can also see the lining as the points from the front hang below the back in the photo.

I’m quite pleased with it.

I think the fact that I made it with what I would call zero waste (after squeezing a pin cushion and a small quilt out of the scraps too small to use) makes me even prouder of what I accomplished. I do not intend to make zero waste a habit though.

I love your color/fabric combinations. It all works so well together. Good job.

I've been looking at some garments from Pappagallos--they are quite eclectic and feature a lot of fiber manipulations. I think they look somewhat rag-tag much like the worn-out jeans people are wearing. I like your combination of fabrics and the binding is perfect--both in execution and styling.

You did a wonderful job! I love the binding.

This is really a piece of beautiful art. I am always trying to make wearable art that also looks beautiful, but doesn't draw attention because I "made" it. You can wear this vest with so many things..... all black or just jeans. Enjoy!
