Meet my lovely friend Betsy. She recently purchased two lovely floral print silk scarves and asked me to make her some garments. First up is the fun and functional vest.
I laid the felt in such a way as to create a great ruffle all the way around the outside edge. Because the scarf isn't very wide I didn't lay any fibers on the body of it - only along the edge. Basically I increased the dimensions of the finished garment by building it with wool. The result is the awesome vest.
I just finished the second garment and will get some photos posted after I give it to her this weekend. It's made with the same size scarf, but is seamless tunic. Stay tuned.
