A new vest
I just finished making this vest, using Virginia Robertson's “Long Vest/Jacket” pattern, this weekend. I used mostly Lonni Rossi fabrics (I simply adore her designs; they are really arty) that I had been hoarding for a few years. I don't usually work in brown, so this is a bit of a departure for me. It really is long – about mid calf, but it would be just as cute shorter. These photos show less than half the length of the full vest.
Here’s the back, showing the details I added with little bits of dupioni silk and threadwork:
