Fashion Vest

Design is inspired by kimono sleeves style.  The strips and color combination give it a retro twist.  I started to knit the body first.  It combines 2 long rectangular pieces.  Sew them together and work on bottom edge, then the sleeves.  No fancy stitches… just purl and knit.  The only trick is pick your own colors, determine the width of each color strips and how deep is your front and back V  you want. 

I am working on the pattern and more than happy to share with you once it's done.  If you are interested to get a copy, please  email me.
