I then hemmed the body of the vest and sewed ties to the vest that attached to the panels.
The armhole is flat at the bottom which is a nod to the oriental, and suits the graphic design of the accent fabric.
I used an asymmetrical button with holes large enough to accommodate a bias cord to give a little zap of color and style to the center front of the vest. These are warm weather pieces. I picture them over a simple short sleeve tee, or a tank.
This was a fun project! I am working on a second vest and will post photos when it is completed.
I have music playing, tea to sip, and a poodle near me. I doubt that heaven could be better than this!!
