My aunt gets remnant fabric from her seamstress and she gave me some of her stash. This is a beautiful flowy fabric that i’ve made into a vest.
I used a self drafted pattern from a blouse i own and like. Since the remnants were not wide, i had to cut out bodice top and bottoms separately.
I started by preparing the darts, finishing the edges, and then conbecting the tops to bottoms. I then connected the front and back pieces at the sides and along the shoulder seams.
A single snap in front closes the vest. The faux collar is the front bodice folded back. I like the contrast of color and the v-neck effect.
This is lightweight and will be worn over plain outfits. The open side seams of the skirt allows easy access to pockets. 🙂
