Cropped Vest of Vintage Lace

Waistcoat with Pockets – Burastyle 07/2010 #101

I like this versatile pattern a lot and felt inspired by lovely lace vests on this site. It helped me use up some of the wee vintage lace remnants I had (origin from the 70s). The pieces of lace I had were virtually no bigger than each individual pattern piece, and I had the exact amount of them in white, and just enough scalloped edging too (used for the hem, I tried to line them up to match smoothly). I edged the top of the little pockets with bias binding also. This vest was fairly quick to stitch up, although there was lots of mess on the floor haha. Location: Muri Beach

Material Notes

woven vintage 70s white/cream floral lace with scallop edging, thin white cotton bias binding/tape.
