I will never wear that vest again (it says STAFF in a very large and unattractive format on the back).
But I did enjoy the concept of taking a t-shirt and making it into a vest, and the comfort the t-shirt offered. So I made a legitimate t-shirt vest out of an old t-shirt my brother had given me a while back with the instructions to do as I pleased.
Above: I paired the vest with a purple striped dress that was formerly my grandmother's.
I used the ribbing around the neck and the sleeves to make the pockets. The lining is a vintage floral patterned fabric that a lady from church had given us. I got the button at JoAnn Fabric's a while back when buttons were 40% off and I could use my employee discount on top of that. One of the pockets has a stenciled flower identical to the flowers on the lining.
I hardly ever wear yellow, but I was drawn to this particular color. Plus it looks great with brown!
