Agate Vest

Susan wrote about how great this garment is. This picture captures the back detailing nicely, although it is a little bunchy at the waist which doesn't happen on the body.

I'm not a fan of the vest as a garment, but clearly I am in the minority! So I decided to design a vest that I would wear--and here it is. Something interesting going on on the back which fully compliments what is happening on the front. The back waist detail will enhance your back view and there is elastic hidden in the band which can be pulled up for greater waist definition if desired.

There is a design principle called Unity which just means that all elements go together in a coherent and cohesive way. It is my favorite Principle.

These are obviously before shots. Before snaps (in pocket). Before blocking. And apparently before working in all the ends!
