I thought I was done with winter sewing but I thought this would be a good transition piece.
So, I made this criss cross vest from a sweater! I loved the way it turned out, better than I expected. I am definitely planning to write a full fledged tutorial for this, but in the mean time, here are some pics of the results.
Here, I wore it with a tank top. I really like the look, and as I mentioned before, it's great for those spring-like days not yet warm enough for just a tank.
This is what it looks like lying flat
...and here it is inside out, front and back. It gives you an idea of how it's put together. I used the sleeves for the back and the criss cross is composed of the front and back of the sweater.
It also looks great with a lace top. I have lots of lace tops so I'm looking forward to getting some use out of them with this vest.
So what do you think. Would you be interested in a tutorial for this?
