This is a Great Vest

It is called begger's cloth because of the process used to texturize the denim; take a razor blade or something sharp and poke holes throughout the fabric then wash the fabric.To finish, layer the fabric over another fabric and topstitch, you can either topstitch by sewing straight lines every inch or so or you can (what I did) free-motion quilt the whole thing. I used taffeta for the the layer under the cloth then I lined the vest with taffeta. The weight and hand of the fabric is very pliable like your favorite pair of jeans. This vest is a must for your wardrobe. It is a one of a kindvest that you will want to put on with almost everything you wear. It has two 5 1/2" X 4 3/4" lined pockets on the front and I like the way the pockets blend in with the fabric. And it also has a 5" welted inside pocket. Over all this vest is made from the inside out. And,of course it has the PJBSW seal of approval.

You can go to my Etsy shop to get all the other details. You don't want to miss out on this vest it is a great buy and a great design. See how nice it looks with your favorite white shirt?
As you can see, if you view my other posts that I have used this cloth in other garments, it is a unique look.

I love your thought of your mother's approval. My grandmother taught me to sew and embroider and she tried to teach me crochet. Lately, I've been finishing projects she started, particularly near and dear to my heart.

You have a lovely, bright blog here Stormee. I'm added you to my blog list and my following list.
