My first wearable!

I finally made a vest that fits. Since I barely sew, and have never made clothing, I am so happy to be inspired by Beth Marx and her blog, www.studio907.com which has many photos of fun vests and other clothing. Between her work and the swell patterns from Pinterest, I was able to come up with a shape and made a muslin that came close to fitting and decided I was ready to felt. I decided I wanted it to be reversible, since I could not pick a single colorway to stick with, and wanted pockets. The pocket shape and additional color inspiration came from Lizzie Houghton's Felting Fashion book. I am looking forward to making more felted clothing over the winter, but for now I need to get to work on inventory for upcoming shows.
