I made a sweater vest instead of another sweater coat. Instead of using a sweater for the bodice I "made" all the fabric out of recycled wool and some cashmere that I cut and pieced and pieced and... well, you get the idea.
I really need to redo the picture because it's a little dark, but meanwhile here it is. I put a white t shirt over my dress form to make it easier to see. It ties at the waist and is a very relaxed fit. Stay tuned, I have some more ideas that just need a little space in my day to get done.
