A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.


What to do with those gorgeous batiks? What better way to enjoy them than to wear them! And good fashion newsTHE VEST IS BACK. Foundation angled piece the flat-front vest, combining five batiks, is flattering.

Embellished with unique, dimensional applique

and fit in the back with small gathers at waist and an applique detail.

Try it with your favorite holiday fabrics. A long-time favorite, this pattern is from the Java House Quilts, designed by Karen Brown.

It is one thing to read about making these vests, but actually seeing the process evolve from beginning to end is such an easy way to learn. It’s truly addictive. Sewing is in the air.

Happy creating!
