Altered Vest

Here's the vest I altered by adding half of a bureau scarf to the back, vintage lace and trims, embroidered cloths made into pockets, and other pieces of vintage embroidered work.  I took it to SEW AND TELL at Tacoma Lakes Quilters this week and Margo took these pictures to post on the TLQ blog.
Here's the back--
hmmm...should have ironed it
The panel is sewn at the shoulders and across the top neckline
and left to fall loosely on the back of the vest.

And here's the front.  I'm pointing out one of the pieces I appliqued to the front.
I used different trims on each front and along the bottom of the vest.
And you can almost see one of the two slanted pockets I added.  Gotta have pockets!
The blue piece on my right shoulder is a crocheted flower pin made by Carolyn Fitz-Patrick.
