Description

I decided to bring out my inner Rick Santorum (*) and make a sweater vest from a purple and black houndstooth fabric I picked up a while ago. Since a sweater vest tends to make you look very classic, I added a purple (arms) and black (waist) border to offset the classic feel a bit.

    Dead impressed with the finishing. Especially at the v point of the neckline. Defo your colour!

    Nice vest! The color looks good on you and I like the outfit. Your label on the side (maybe?) is cool too .

      Thank you :)
      I found this fabric in a fabric shop in Leuven (Belgium) called Pauli. Bit of a lucky score I guess ;)
