The Grey Vest

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

For the coming spring, I decided to make a few pieces of clothing to help round out my wardrobe and getting it ready for the seasonal changes.  This vest was an experimental piece that I made.  I decided a high collar would give it some flare, and I sort of love the industrial utility of the fabric and buttons.  I tried a few different designs, most of them centering around a utility-type vest. In the end, with the fabric, buttons and shape I chose, the drawstring was the wrong choice and I left it sack-like (In the most attractive way possible).
