I enjoy combining my love of clothing design and my compulsion for collage as often as possible. Wearable art has become a passion for me. I usually prefer to apply my collage work by hand, but with this vest I experimented with using a free motion quilting attachment to my sewing machine. I still prefer the quiet rhythm of hand sewing, but the edgy effect of this vest is really beautiful, and allowed me to use random little snippets of fabric that I probably wouldn't have before. Experimentation is always exciting. The vest is tea dyed and sized women size 2.
