Here is my garment I made for the Wearable Art Contest on Pattern Review.com
This is a two piece outfit (vest and shorts).
The collar on the vest is kimono fabric from Ah! Kimono.
I used fish butons with kimono fabric covered mouse tail (cording) for the loops.
I accented the armscye and the collar edge with a sashiko running (straight) stitch.
I also embroidered a butterfly on the back of the vest with the sashiko running stitch.
I used a cotton ‘quilt’ fabric for the lining.
I altered the back of the vest to have a ‘v’ shape.
Now for the shorts, I used linen – look fabric from Joann’s. First a picture of the completed shorts with the contoured waistband – that fits great.
I used kimono fabric for the welt pockets. The turtle buttons are from Fabric Mart in Honolulu, HI.
My label that I sew into all the clothes that I make for myself.
And the very last picture of this endeavor is . . .
My cats – Fitzwilliam and Darby II. Sorry no pictures of me wearing this new outfit. I’m here by myself and I haven’t figured out the timer on the camera yet. I know, it is probably not all that difficult – I mean, if I can sew I should be able to figure out the camera . . . Thanks for stopping by.
