A few firsts….
I had been gathering material samples from a local depot early this year. It is a community initiative that gives people access to industrial excesses. There are many lovely fabric swatches.

I searched on the web for a vest a pattern… and I discovered BurdaStyle beta. And since you’re here already, I don’t need to tell you how awesome it is.

subtle navy, black, grey check – casual with dark denim or corporate with black suit
black satin (reversable) lining – casual over coloured tops, high lustre satin for a night out
