Before festival season comes to a close, make the most of its waning days with a tribal vest top that you’ve designed yourself, with a little help from Spinster’s Emporium’s Donna Bramhall. See you by the dance stage...
You will need: vest, scissors, beading needle, iron-on interfacing, lightweight fabrics, a selection of buttons and beads.
01 Wash and iron your fabrics. Trace your shapes (on page 89) onto the paper side of the ironon interfacing.
02 Roughly cut around the edge of the shapes.
03 Iron the interfacing paper-side up onto the back of your fabric. 04 Cut out the shapes. 05 Peel the interfacing paper off the back of the shapes.
06 Lay your shapes fabric-side up (and glue-side down) on to the vest, then iron into position one row at a time.
07 Using a sewing machine, and with a small zigzag stitch in a contrasting-colored thread, sew around the edge of the bigger shapes. Straight stitch over the top of the smaller shapes (see the templates for stitch details).
08 Sew on beads and buttons as per your design, or go free flow. Wear with cut-offs, boots, and await glowing compliments.
