This was one of my most labor intensive projects which I complete in a couple of days last spring. I was inspired (once again) by the stylish dress book. It was a simple denim-like cropped navy vest with a racerback and covered in chiffon ruffles. I spent a ton of time learning how to do a rolled hem on my overlock machine and citting and gathering ruffles. I was super happy with the result, but it is was to quirky for me to wear in public. The one time I did I felt like a little lamb!
