Description

A classic Victorian pattern shawl-collar vest, re-imagined in bold modern fabrics. I had some trouble putting it together at times (especially on the welt pockets, which were a nightmare on this one for some reason), but overall I am quite pleased with how it’s come out.

      Oh, thank you! I am fairly pleased with the colors, but I can’t help but think maybe a red lining would have been more striking.
