Sewist: Jan

Project: Wool Vest
Fabric: Wool bouclé
Lining: China Silk
Buttons: AAF
Pattern: Burda #8546
Notes: Jan's simple yet stunning vest reflects both her fine sewing skills and her creativity. She shredded the fabric (variegated wool and mohair in shades of gray) to pull out fibers, then twisted them together to make a cording which she then couched on by hand. A charming accessory along with a perfect bound buttonhole adorn the front of this vest.
