Play time done, for now!

finished and drying on a hanger.

detail

back view

full front view. I ended up making slits in the side so that when it is on, the front panels fall nicely. It is still damp here and hanging a little stiff.

Mid way through fulling.
I got impatient and took the piece off the resist quite early and immediately regretted it knowing it could all come apart. It was all in a heap and I could not let what part was what. I very carefully lifted shifted the piece to begin fulling careful to support the weight.

Wet out last flap

layout of last flap
I will post a picture of me in it when my photographer is done his homework!

These vests are the most beautiful thing I have seen in felt. What a treat to wear them. And the design is wonderful. The perorations just make it sparkle!

I like very much your last works! It's wonderful!

Thanks, ALL! Yes, both are for me. I know I will enjoy wearing them. I was so tierd of only wearing the 'reject' scarves that did not get sent to the galleries and then explaining to poeple commenting on them that they were not very good. Now I can wear these ans say "Oh, this old thing? Just something I whipped up." You all will know better :o)
