Summer Breeze makes me feel fine

Very excited to be working on some new designs, well not entirely "MY" design, my latest project is a vest for this Spring/Summer . I got a Vogue Vintage pattern from the 70's and thought it would be a perfect come back for accessorizing on  a dress, top or braving it alone...though I wouldn't,  I'm sure some gals would have no problem.
The color combination I chose , I know isn't very "springy" or" Summery", I don't necessarily always feel that just because it's Summer we all should wear Yellows and  Oranges to go with the's really whatever strikes your fancy and these colors did just that for me.
I will, however, be putting some up on my Etsy site soon, full of Light and fun Summer prints.
I sort of chose this Mushroom print as a sort of last minute for the straps, I think it worked well...I really love it actually.
I'll be posting some pictures of when I wear this little vest to show different ways you can wear it over your favorite pieces. Oooh! and there are some other pieces in the pattern, that make for lovely knit vests and leather...I'll be experimenting with those as well. In the meantime, I have to go clock in to work only I could sew all day and night.
