Skill Level: Beginner
Duration: Less than 1 hour
Fabric Quantity: 2 yards (For this vest, I only used 1/2 of the 2 yards but if you use the full 2 yards, the vest can be made longer and worn as a beach coverup). OR you can make 2 vests with the 2 yards OR make 1 vest and 1 scarf with the left over remaining fabric :-)
Fabric Quality: Use Silk, Polyester or Rayon fabrics with drape
Casual, Romantic, Elegant is the inspiration for this silk vest I made. Used neutral nudes with faded denim blue color for the mood board. I love the light and airy touch and feel of this delicate silk chiffon jacquard fabric I used. The sheer and drapiness of the the silk chiffon gives a real feminine touch to wear with faded denim pants. This vest looks fancy and difficult to make but you'll be surprised how simple and easy of a project it is. All you need is a little bit of fabric and a sewing machine to stitch and finish the hem all around.
There are only 4 steps to making this vest.
Cut straight line, finish the hem, fold, stitch shoulder line. That's it!
