ruffled vest

This is my entry for this week's So You Think You Can Sew. The theme is apparel and I wanted to try something I've had swirling around in my little brain for a while. A ruffled vest. To make it, I used and old bed sheet. The fabric was super soft, which made for some great draping of the ruffles. The ruffles are made out of about two hundred circles. I watched a lot of Nexflix with a pair of fabric shears while I was making this. The silhouette of the vest remind me of the fur vests everyone is wearing right now, and I kinda like it. 

Oh, and the hat? My husband's. He found it in the Cayman Islands. I think my love of fashion is rubbing off on him. But don't tell him I said so.

The colour combination is brilliant! How did you do that? When I combine things, they never match so perfectly and it looks kinda childish :D

I love the vest btw. You look gorgeous! As always :)
