This kimono style reversible seamless nuno felted vest was fun to make. One side is less decorative that the other. On the decorative side, I used various types of silks including burn-out with beads, metallic silk and vintage sari silks.
My work in progress including my own prefelts and yarn to embellish.
I made a button using a cinnabar bead and glued on a button back using trusty E6000 Glue. I then used bead thread to add semiprecious small beads, a coin and a hanging turquoise bead. I sewed a blanket stick button hole on both sides of the vest.
Back of the vest
I embellished the corded closures with semi precious beads.
This is the reverse side of the vest.
