March 7, 21 and 28

Instructor: Julie Simpson

This project is for Confident Beginners and up.  This vest is a loose fitting, one-size-fits-most (size 6-14) vest. This pattern is adaptable, we will discuss many options to customize this vest to be a wearable and well-fitting work of art.  You can use a Jelly Roll and make the fabric using the colors and designs in a unique pattern.  Maybe you opt to use a printed design on the back and augment the sides and top/bottom with strips of coordinated fabric.  The possibilities are endless and we will spend lots of time figuring out ways to make this project truly one of a kind.  

We will meet on Wednesday evenings from 5 to 8 pm.  At the first class, March 7, we will figure out the fabric requirements depending on your choice of design.  The pattern is full size in the book.  Some will choose the color combinations and augmentation for a printed design.  Some will use the Jelly Roll approach.  This is a great opportunity for artistic freedom and experimentation. The next classes are March 21 and 28.  This gives a week in the middle (March 14) to put together the fabrics and cut out the vest parts.  If you feel like you need some one on one time choosing fabrics, Julie will be available on March 14th to help you, just give us a call or email and let us know that you would like this added service.
