Tie Vest = Sold
Pieces from old silk neckties, all in a similar color range, made up this vest. The orange satin patches were the only additions that were not from neckties.
Bathrobe - Sold
This robe was made completely from leftover fabric scraps. A used cotton flannel sheet blanket was used as the base for the patchwork. It provided body and warmth for the garment.
Shirt Front - Sold
With a wild and colorful shirt such as this, it seemed just right to use unmatched buttons, each one of a different color. The button box was handy here.
