Fun vest that I pulled together from fabric scraps and used the Franzi pattern. I altered the back strap because I didn’t quite understand the pattern directions. Still trying to get a good fit in the back. (the red shirt underneath is also made from leftover fabric and a simplicity pattern from 1977)
purple satin (lining), black wool/polyester?
Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
