That is the most amazing vest! It absolutely looks like clothing, but with something extra. The amount of time that must have taken...........well, it was worth it!

This is just so beautiful. The colors are so complementary, and the buttons are perfect. The amount of work that goes into piecing this vest really paid off in a gorgeous piece of wearable art!

You made so many great design decisions to make this beautiful vest. The scale of the pieces i perfect for a garment, the subtle color choices and the fitted vest design. Bravo, it looks wonderful on you.

I like the small piecing and the subdued color pallette you have chosen. It is very nice looking and very wearable. It definitely is a work of art and deserves a signature.

Wow, I am so WOW'd! What a lot of love and time went into this. Beautiful. I always watch for your reviews and have been wondering where you were. I guess you were busy sewing a lot of little peices together...Hehe.

Oh my, this turned out fantastic! I love the "quilted" effect. I can't believe each little piece was originally a scrap, it looks like it's own whole fabric. Great job! It is really very pretty!
