I love finding creative ways to use up my odd-shaped fabric remnants, don’t you? Here’s another really versatile piece from a pattern in shape shape! At first I wasn’t sure how much use I would get out of this as I don’t typically wear vests, but I’m really happy with how it turned out. The neutral colors coordinate well with what I have already in my closet and I love the memories associated with the fabric!
This reversible vest can be worn buttoned up the back or draped as a scarf. I used a leftover piece of fabric that I dyed naturally with cabbage leaves to make up my flared wave skirt and reused the linen embroidered polka dot fabric that I made into a baby ring sling when my son was born. This was a nice quick sew with some added top stitching, and I used 3 buttons on one side to keep it lightweight. This project is a great way to use up leftover fabric! Do you have any good scrap & stash-busting projects?
Looks great what a good idea for a versatile garment.
Thanks so much! Great quick sew project!
Thanks! It’s a great easy pattern :)
