one of the best things in working as a salesperson in a fabric shop is, you get to buy fabrics with cheaper price.
one of the best things in being in a position of “load receiver” in a fabric shop is, you get to see the newest fabrics that arrive to the shop before anyone else sees it.
put two and two together, and i’m that lucky person .
so i found this cute Moschino fabric like a year ago, before it went to the table of our shop, and though it was quite “pricey” for my pocket (which is still WAAAAY cheaper than a ready-to-wear piece from the brand, of course), i decided that i just HAVE to get it anyway, just 0,75m will do. it’s an original Moschino fabric, how can i NOT get it??
for almost a year, the fabric’s just sitting up there, along with the rest of the fabrics i couldn’t resist to buy…
and then some months ago, i found another fabric, with prints of Jamie McLeod‘s photography. it looked so cool, that, again, i just decided to get it.
2 weeks ago, i suddenly saw them both and an idea just clicked: they’re both around the same amount, same width, same length….why not make something reversible out of these 2 fabrics? and since i only have 0,75m of those, i need to make something small.
a vest it is .
this is my first time trying to make a reversible piece of clothing, and i actually learned the “reversible” seam effect from the pattern of this jacket.
other than that seam, i also figured out to sew the buttons on both sides (inner & outer), so no matter which “side” i’m wearing, i can still button up the vest.
the pattern for this vest comes from BurdaStyle, and it was supposed to be this “office” kind of vest, with lining, latch at the back, flaps on the front, etc. strip all that extra stuffs, and this is what you get.
this vest is perfect for me who has double personality: cutie-stuffs lover & dark-stuffs lover.
as always, bigger & better pics can be found here.
