Wearable Art! MOre LifeVests
Hello! Pictured above is a Vest that I made for Nancy in Washington State. I used hand-dyed (by me) silk chiffon scarves. The white square that's not so clear is fabulous vintage lace! The bright edging that you see is silk taffeta. Thankyou, Nancy!
This LifeVest has sleeves added on and is lined-yes, you can wear it either way round! I made the lining using vintage curtains. I sued the same meshy fabric for the outer shell and mixed in some silks and cottons. Yes, the sides are vented.
