Cordele, Georgia...






It was super hot when I went to take these pictures…I could’ve died! But this is the 2nd thing I’ve made. Once again, made my own pattern. I used a blanket and a skirt that my mom was throwing out to tryout this new pattern. Next things on my list to do are adding pockets and collars.

Material Notes

some wool looking blanket and a old skirt

    Really good. There’s definitely a lot of individuality in that vest – one of the best things about sewing is putting in those quirks and personal touches, and you’re clearly already well on your way to showing your style in what you make.

    YOU are a natural!

    That button placement and curves place you in the “advanced” group – very stylish.

    The up-cycled fabric is commendable, inventive, and inspiring.

      Hmm…I guess so accidently. You inspire me :) Thanks for the advice. I’ll try that sometime. Sorry about that though, I just wanted it to swing across the chest.

      You don’t have to say sorry, that’s normal practice. You see something and take it as a base for your own idea. totally legal!!
      :-) Hope to inspire you more often!!!
