The Light and Dark of Vests

Rapid City, Sout...






Here are two vests I made simultaneously using leftovers from my stash of fabric. Vests are great for that because the pieces are small enough, and there aren’t that many pieces that you can get a lot out of just a little fabric. The dark gray vest is left over denim from a pair of pants for my nephew with some awesome technicolor tiger striped lining, and the light khaki vest is made of a pair of men’s pants I got for only $2, the lining is made of a pair of extra large men’s liberty print boxers from Target (so excited about the car print!)

I’ve used this pattern before, these are #3 and 4 in my collection of vests from this pattern and I love it. It fits perfectly and adds that extra touch of cool to just about any outfit!

    Que buen trabajo, además de creativo; se puede ver como reutilizar telas de nuestro viejo vestuario, para crear uno nuevo más bonito, sofisticado y versátil.
