Elmira, New York...
So last weekend my parents had me come by and help clean out the garage. While doing so i ran into an man’s vest buried alongside some stuff i had from college. Now i have ZERO idea whose vest this is, and my parents had never seen it before, soooooo DIBS! lol.
Rushing home, tossed it onto my dress dummy and hemmed and hawed until just today i was able to mold it into something more modern. Now i can’t WAIT to wear it to work.
This was super easy to do, so much so that i might go looking for another vest at “Salvo” sometime soon :)
unidentified nylon/ryon/silk fabric. Typical pin strip stiff cotton blend.
