I made this waistcoat for my husband several years ago and never blogged it. No idea why. I’m writing about it now because the quilt group I belong to, Welsh Heritage Quilters, are putting on an exhibition 26th March – 9th April (Minerva Centre, Llanidloes) and I thought I’d show this.
The top is made of stretch velvet stabilised with interfacing. The underneath layer is silk taffeta. I beaded with glass beads and the machine threads are a mixture of variegated threads from cheap to expensive – silk to manmade.
Does he wear it? Yes, for several New Year parties or anything else where bling is an option.
Thanks for dropping by.
