Remember this past Spring, when I announced it was going to be a Summer of vests? I had all these plans to wear my crochet over tanks for a bit of extra warmth and cover, and I only succeeded with one vest that I like. My second attempt at a vest only sat on a shelf in my room. I occasionally brought it down, tried it on, and put it back deciding not to wear it. Well, I revamped this vest (which is really a rectangle) into an asymmetrical poncho/cape that I LOVE! I’ve worn it once already, and have gotten some complements. But the reason I want to tell you about it today is that it will be part of my Thanksgiving outfit this year.
Here is a reminder of what it looked like.
It was basically one big rectangle in a geometric lace pattern. Simple right? I made it big enough that it could be worn as a shawl, it fits easily over my shoulders.
I then folded it so that it comfortably slip over and rest on my shoulders. The asymmetrical construction can be worn a few ways. I placed buttons on the top, which can be arranged differently, if I wanted. Here is the result.
And a few more pics, because Hubby thinks he’s an artist ;).
Hope all my U.S. readers have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and everyone else a wonderful week!
