A Franzi made as a college graduation present for my little sis. After she graduated she moved to Kenai, Alaska, so I made the vest to be very warm!
Wool that my mom has had for ages (I had to work around the holes my sisters and cut out for Barbie clothes). I lined it with a thick, tight weave 100% silk that’s wind and water resistant. Buttons are recycled from an old blazer of mine.
