This vest started out life as a long 'boy friend' sweater. You know the one for the 80s, to the knees and long dropped shoulders. I was inspired by an Anthropology sweater and remembered this sweater in my overflow closet.
The fiber content is 100% Shetland wool so I knew it would felt. I washed the sweater and it felted to just a little longer than a vest. (I wish I had taken a before pic) I then cut the sleeves off and felted them again. I used the felted sleeves to make the flowers.
