I made this vest from an old pair of pants, using both the inside and outside of the fabric for creating the subtle color changes. I also used the pant’s pockets as pockets for the vest.
Genuine mother-of-pearl buttons are sewn to the front and the seams are topstitched. The back has a bow attached for easy adjustment.
