    I am starting to love vests more than I love belts (which I never thought possible!) Can’t wait to start this one!

    What a beautiful simple version of this vest. And no need for buckles! I will definitely be making one.

    I find sewing inspiration from fashion magazines and my favorite designers, like Marc Jacobs, APC, Rachel Comey, Vena Cava, church and state, and many more. I like to visit street style blogs too, like wardrobe remix, HEL LOOKS, and urban weeds. I also find inspiration in the BurdaStyle community.

    My inspiration for the most part comes from video games, comics, and movies. That’s only because I don’t read magazines and such often, but I find that every time I do pick up a fashion mag, I get an irresistible urge to sew as well. :)
