Art Deco vest



While looking for ideas I spotted a picture of a stained glass quilt done in an art deco way so I decided to try the technique on a vest. I appliqued the pieces on a black background, satin stitched the edges and lined the vest The pattern is one I made for this application. The front flap can be worn up or down. All comments are very welcome .

That is a wonderful, unique take off on the art deco theme. The use of the black to pull all the colors together really works. Did you actually make this just since Friday?? Wear it in good health.

Your choice of vivid fabrics is definitely Art Deco. I like the way you used the black to set them all off. Enjoy wearing it!
