Vest-ed Interest Vest
basis for this garment is a basic natural linen vest, by Calvin Klein,
size Medium. The vest is nicely constructed with a small buckle in the
back, full lining and some machine embroidered motifs on the front.
I have transformed the vest i by using some William Morris appliques:
the sides are covered with pieces of the material called "Fruit".
I created a gold collar for the piece using a OOAK scarf by Karin
Gerstel, and enlivened the existing embroideries with some glass seed
beads and some lovely pearls.
I also added the body of a very large Art Deco earring belonging to a
set that was purchased years ago at the Comedie Francaise store in
I replaced the buttons with some "real" cameos from Italy, actually
carved from a shell, in which I drilled some holes to transform them
