This vest was made by copying a ready made men’s vest and then using vintage ties to create fabric for the front and the bias binding. I hear this is a project that every student of fashion creates, but I was happy with the outcome. I removed the interfacing from the ties to reduce bulk.
Vintage ties, linen, ribbon trim.
Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
