Pirate’s Vest

Pirate's Vest
This vest should have been an every-day vest, but turned out to be mostly an alternative vest for the 2014 outfit Airship Pirate, because it does not go well with most of my wardrobe.

But it is cozy and warm and I will definitely find many opportunities to wear it in everyday life :-)

Making of …

The sewing pattern for the vest is from F.I.M.I. (Winter 2007). The pattern fits so perfectly that I did not have to change it at all :-)
The fabric is the rest from the Airship Pirate. The green-brown washed-out colour gradient of the coarse cord fabric adds to the shabby look of the vest – so it is perfect for a bold pirate ;-)

I bought the wonderful buttons in a shop in Amsterdam and so I built a little memory into the vest with them :-)

Actually this vest was supposed to be a test piece for a larger project, but the finished vest is beautiful enough to get a side of its own here ;-)

The vest is made out of brocade fabric with dark violet roses on it, it has a lordly black lining and is closed with bronze-coloured buttons in one row.

There is also a black tie out of the beautifull lining fabric matching the vest.

The idea behind this combination of a vest and a pencilskirt was simply to sew something suitable for daily use, even suitable for the office, that had a touch of Steampunk to it.

To do so, I decided to use brown needlecord together with two fabrics with fobwatches of slightly different coloring.
