Julia, it looks great! I have some denim look tencel on its way to me right now. I'm thinking fringed edges or something. I love how you recycled the skirt.

I also really liked that Threads article about using worn denim. Although I have saved up a lot of old (much smaller jeans) I haven't tried anything with them yet. A vest is a great idea for using the smaller pieces. Your vest looks great.

Very creative. It would be a shame to overlap the front, since it has such visual interest when left open.

The recycling worked so well! That skirt has a whole new life :)

Using the faded waistband for the vest's front bands makes this vest really cool. So clever!

Julia, I have several tencel pieces that I really love for comfort in all kinds of weather. I really like the front trim detail on this pattern.
