Slow and steady wins the race!

Hand basted silk binding on a commission order – a drapey vest made out of a vintage damask tablecloth from the client’s collection, which I first eco dyed. The basting will be removed later. 

Plus size eco dyed vest

I used to make my own and my children’s clothes, so it’s nice to get back into sewing garments! However, this time round I’m making them to sell, not to keep.

Here, I’m making the best use of an odd shaped remnant. Plus size eco dyed vest, trimmed with vintage silk binding and appliqué, and grosgrain ribbon ties.
