A good friend was inspired by some internet images of a 70’s hippy wedding. He fell in love with the handmade crazy quilt waistcoat and asked me if I could create one for his wedding. I agreed. The 3 groomsmen became 5 (!) but I kept my promise and completed the project just in time. Each person provided me with some fabric (including old clothes) and a general theme/colour scheme. I contributed my vast fabric collection and countless hours in front of the TV and commuting to work. This project was so big I had to take it everywhere – family dinners and jury duty (but only whilst waiting to be empanelled). Despite some initial reservations all the groomsmen (and woman) can’t wait for more opportunities to wear their custom made waistcoats.
Bemsilk lining, countless scraps of vintage and kimono fabric, used clothing, Coats and Anchor cotton embroidery thread, vintage sewing thread, vintage and re-cycled fabric.
