What was your inspiration?
all 4 grand daughters wanted something to wear for St Paddys day, a friend made them each a bracelet, so i decided on vests, made them reversible so they can also wear them through spring with other outfits
What are you most proud of?
that i managed to make each one different with either the fabric combo or the design, i redesigned the fronts of several so they could be worn with out being buttoned or tied- some are regular vest styles, several are bolero style
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
look through remnants for complementary fabric, found a couple i used in the remnant pile at the store-
