new vest idea

Silk Vest

I am working on a new idea for the circle vest that I had made in the past out of cotton.  This vest is made out of silk jersey and it is more of an oval than a complete circle.  It still has the large holes for the arms that I like but it drapes a bit better and is less bulky than the cotton.

I'm not the best model but I am just trying to get a sense whether the oval is better than the full circle and that the slightly shorter length in the back is a bit more convenient.
My friend, Kirsten, let me use her serger so I have serged all the edges rather than create a binding which was a great time saver and also reduces the bulk.

I would love your thoughts!
Can't wait to dye it!  The thread I serged it with was also silk.  A bit more expensive but a must if the dying is to be seemless.


  1. This is amazing Daniela. I love it but am too short to wear something of that length, but I think it's gorgeous.

  2. This is gorgeous. I like the way it drapes.
    Thank you for sharing.

  3. That is very cool, Daniela! And brilliant! Can't wait to see the colors!

  4. Very feminine and beautiful.
