Two asymmetrical waistcoats made from wool. The black one is boiled wool and the grey from an old blanket I found. Tried to keep as much of the blanket stitch edge in the grey one. Boiled wool is just…well, perfect.
Buttons are hand made from leather.
Wool- does not fray, easy to sew, firm, warm, natural and sustainable. What is not to love?
Check the Wool Modern exhibition photos on my blog for some wool inspiration….http://urbandon.blogspot.com.au/2012/04/wool-modern-exhibition.html
