Wool Tweed Stenciled Vest for Women (Large)

 

This vest was designed as a sample for a wearable arts class at my retail storefront.  I had had Diane Ericson to the shop and she taught stenciling.  I took the cream motif from the dark viscose rayon fabric to copy and cut a stencil - then added that to the wool/lycra solid on the other front of the vest.  The colors blended so well with the wool/silk remnants I had from a blazer and skirt (Skirt available for sell HERE), that I combined it in this fully lined vest for that all-important 3rd fabric.  Fine piping borders the neckline,  yokes  and center front edges while a larger cording accents the center back and 'pigtails (another Diane E. detail) around on the right shoulder.  The back is quite interesting as well - with an expansion pleat at the center back, nipped in at the waist then flaring out at the center back.  Nice 2 tone grey buttons and a snap work to close the vest.  If you want to wear it open, the snap can easily be removed from the uppermost position at the center front.  A solid black, grey, or cream turtleneck or jewel neck top works great with this vest.  A vest really adds the finishing touch to an outfit - supplying (again), that 3rd element.  You'll feel all that much more 'pulled together' when you add a 3rd piece (ala scarf, jacket, large jewelry to a top and bottom.)  

I have marked this garment 'Pre-Loved' and priced it down due to that, as I did wear it some - likely less than 5 times though.  It hung in my shop as a sample.  Otherwise, with all the labor, it would be closer to $100.  

One-of-a-kind garment.
